Our exhibitions:

The history from Stiftelsen Arkivet is conveyed through our permanent exhibition, temporary and virtual exhibitions. The exhibits are open to the public on weekdays from kl. 09:00 - 15:00 (Saturdays are closed). There is a daily tour of the permanent exhibition at. 13.15.

Crimescene and memorial:

Stiftelsen Arkivet is located in the former state archives in Kristiansand. During the Second World War the building was the headquarters of Gestapo in southern Norway. In Nazi service, the building became a symbol of torture and contempt for human dignity. Today the house is filled with activies to contribute to a society with greater human dignity, based on freedom and democracy.
