Historical and modern art exhibitions
One of Norway's leading art museums

Lillehammer Art Museum is one of Norway’s leading art museums. The collection consists of over 1500 works dating from the 19th century to the present day. Part of the collection is always on show. The museum building was designed by the architecture firm Snøhetta and is their first ever building. The museum organizes several separate exhibitions a year, featuring both historical art and modern art.

Architecture: During the xvii Olympic Winter Games, Lillehammer Art Museum was a main cultural forum. Architect Erling Viksjø´s building from 1963 was remodeled and to it was joined a new distinctive building designed by Snøhetta Arkitektur & Landskap AS. Between the two buildings sculptor Bård Breivik has created a sculptured garden in which stone and water are the main elements.
