Culture and history

 

The main buildings of the regional Dalane museum, established in 1910, are at Slettebø near Egersund. There are several buildings that contain valuable and extensive collections. The museum is also housed at several other locations in Dalane. For example, Egersund Faience Museum (decorated earthenware and porcelain) is located near the town center.

The main part of the original buildings at Slettebø is the author Feyer’s country house from the 1850’s, comprising the main building, the farm manager’s house, and a shelter for the horse-drawn carriage. An arbor is from the 1830s. During the WW2, Slettebø was extended as a military base. The museum’s workshop and agricultural section are housed in buildings from this period of occupation.
