About the collections

The museum is the home of large collections, especially of objects and photographs. We took over the care of some of these collections from Troms Folkemuseum and Tromsø bymuseum.

Today Perspektivet has a restrictive collections policy. When we take new material into out collections it is most often through our documentary projects and exhibitions.

Our most recent project was about the writer and painter Cora Sandel/Sara Fabricius, and through this we added exciting photographic material, paintings and archive materials to our collection.

About Contemporary Documentation

Perspektivet has carried out a series of documentary and exhibition projects where we take as our point of departure a contemporary theme that interests us and which we feel should receive more attention.

Our historical collections include objects, archive material, pictures and over twenty buildings.
