The Norwegian Glacier Museum & Ulltveit-Moe Climate Centre is an interactive museum for the whole family, who gives you knowledge about glaciers and climate in new and innovative ways.

The museum is a non-profit foundation established by the International Glaciological Society, the Norwegian Trekking Association, Norwegian Water Resources and Energy Directorate, Norwegian Polar Institute, Sogn og Fjordane University College, The University of Bergen and The University of Oslo.

The aim of the Norwegian Glacier Museum is to collect, create and disseminate knowledge about glaciers and climate. The exhibitions cover topics within both natural and cultural history. The interplay within the natural environment and between mankind and nature, is highlighted through film, interactive models and individual experiments with real glacier ice. The Norwegian Glacier Museum - a museum for curious people.

Glaciers and climate - to know and to reflect.

The exhibition deals with 24 themes in four main categories. It is shown among others how glaciers build up, how they form the landscape, and why they play an important role in the search for knowledge about past and future climate.

The Ulltveit-Moe Climate Centre is part of the museum and takes you on a journey through time, from the creation of the earth, through the last ice age and finally to the year 2100.

The Norwegian Glacier Museum is an authorized national park centre, with special information about Jostedalsbreen National Park.

The museum is designed by the architect Sverre Fehn, who has won international awards for his works. From the roof you have a spectacular view of the glaciers and the surrounding landscape.
