Eydehavn Museum displays the industrial history of Eydehavn and the new industrial times after 1913. The two cornerstone companies Arendal Smelteverk AS and Det norske nitridatieselskap (Nitriden) plays a central part in the exhibitions as they catch a glimpse of life at home and at work. In addition the exhibitions contains topics such as housing conditions, social life and political activity . We also have a restored, fully equipped apartment from the 1920s, Maren Aanonsens collection of older domestic utensils and our temporary exhibitions.

The museum has an outdoor exhibition located in the neighbourhood. The exhibition is based on street names with personal names and provides an insight into the history of Eydehavn through these people. The exhibition is open throughout the year.
