Kistefos Museum, located on an ancient pulp mill site, is one of Europe's leading modern art sculpture parks. It features an industrial museum, two art museums, and a remarkable sculpture park set amidst picturesque scenery. The museum preserves the region's architectural and industrial heritage while showcasing contemporary art from Norway and around the world.

The Sculpture Park at Kistefos adds new sculptures annually, boasting 46 pieces by renowned global artists such as Yayoi Kusama, Fernando Botero, and Anish Kapoor.
