Must (Museum Stavanger) holds stewardship of over 150,000 works of art and cultural and natural-historical objects. Selections of these can be experienced in exciting exhibitions and events at MUST’s eleven museums. Several museums are in buildings and parks with cultural-historical value. MUST also has responsibility for two floating vessels, Wyvern and Anna av Sand, as well as Revtangen Ornithological Station. In addition, it administers the Ringing Centre, which organises all scientific bird ringing in Norway. MUST has a library for internal and external users.

Most of the museums are located in or near Stavanger’s city centre. Stavanger Museum houses the Norwegian Children’s Museum and exhibitions focusing on natural history and the history of Stavanger. Stavanger Maritime Museum and the Norwegian Canning Museum are in Old Stavanger. Stavanger Art Museum lies next to lake Mosvannet, and Stavanger School Museum is in Hillevåg. The neighbourhood of Egenes where you can find the villa Breidablikk and the summer mansion and royal residence Ledaal. are in the Eiganes neighbourhood. Revtangen Ornithological Station is at Revtangen in the municipality of Klepp, and Norway’s only standing medieval monastery, Utstein Monastery, is on the island of Mosterøy near Rennesøy.

Throughout the year the museums offer over 400 events. Every autumn they organise Museum Night in partnership with Stavanger Archaeological Museum.

MUST emphasises cross-disciplinary collaboration and innovative learning and engagement programmes. Several of these programmes have won national prizes.

MUST is one of five regional museums in Rogaland. It is organised into four disciplinary departments and one department for joint services.
