You’ll find us at Storgata 95, in one of the city’s most beautiful old wooden buildings. Here we show changing exhibitions.
In our exhibitions you will encounter both knowledge and art. You can learn something new, but also wonder about your own life and the lives of others.
Stories from the Building
Right now you will find two exhibitions that begin with the story of the building. It was build as the home of the Mack family in 1838, and has later had many uses, amongst other things as Folkets Hus – a meeting place for workers from 1911-2001.
Cora Sandel lived here
Sara Fabricius lived in an apartment in the building in her youth. She later became one of Norway’s greatest writers of the 20th century under the name Cora Sandel. Cora Sandel/Sara Fabricius lived a long life in Tromsø, France and Sweden, as a painter, writer, and private person. In our exhibitions on the first and second floor, different times, places and facts are woven together.
Focus on photography
At Perspektivet Museum we consider photography to be a valuable medium. On the ground floor you can often see a photography exhibition. Many are from northern areas, but we also show relevant exhibitions from other parts of the world. In order to get perspectives on the north, we believe that we also need perspectives from elsewhere.
