The Centre is located in the cultural park at Karljohansvern. The Centre took over the former infirmary of the navy and changed it into a museum exhibit comprising authentic surroundings and trades of the near past, such as cobbler workshop, forge, carpenter workshop, classroom, grocery store, to mention a few examples. The centre has its own reading room with library consisting of an archive of photographs, drawings, maps, newpapers, documents and books. The coffee shop is found at the mouth of the canal in beautiful surroundings at the inner harbour. Opening hours: Sunday 11-15 Entrance: NOK 1,-
