A cooperative project by eight cultural history museums
The project's main goal is to increase the knowledge of everyday life in Norway since the time of the Reformation. Norwegian society has undergone drastic changes during this time period, and the project wants to show how these changes have had their manifestation on the individual level and how they have expressed materialistically in the home environment. The aim is to study the relationship between the traditional and the modern by focusing on the changes in the design as well as the use of the private home.
