Guides tours every Saturday

Every Saturday at 12:00 we offer a guided your in english. In this tour, you will receive an introduction that covers the history of the building, the architecture, and the opening exhibition "Passions of the North."

Are you Kunstsilo's new executive director?

Located in the heart of Kristiansand in southern Norway, Kunstsilo is much more than an art museum. This architectural landmark houses the world’s largest collection of Nordic modernism and is both a meeting place for culture and creativity and an instrument for artistic innovation. Kunstsilo is set to become one of the most influential art museums in the Nordic region, and is now looking for an executive director who can reach this target.
