About the museum
The building is originally a merchant's farm built by Jørgen Chrystie in 1761. Three rooms in the stately farm have been restored to their original style, with contemporary interiors.

The museums main exhibition portrays the life of sea hero Cort Adeler. You can also learn about the occupation history that tells about how World War II started and developed, about acts of war, resistance work and everyday life. Including many concrete events that took place in Grenland. The exhibition is rich in pictures and authentic objects. The city museum also includes an old post office, shop and pharmacy.
