With the help of games and specialization, science and magic, you will learn about hunting, fishing and gathering for nutrition, sports and fun. However, there are also some serious aspects. Is it ethical to enjoy hunting and fishing? Why is biological diversity so important? Which species need extra protection? Which species are unwanted? How have we hunted and captured predators through the ages?
The exhibition allows you to take a closer look at the Norwegian wildlife, primarily species we can hunt. The four large predators – lynx, wolverine, wolf and brown bear – are also represented. You can watch a film about fishing, or you can go fishing yourself, in our magnetic fishpond.
What do we know about the senses of the animals and the fish? How can we outsmart them? In the exhibition, you will find examples of how fishing and hunting have been performed from early days and to modern times.
How big a part of the Norwegian country are national parks, protected watercourses or wilderness? A large-scale map will give you the answers.
Could you need some good fortune in fishing and hunting? The black book has the recipes for everything you need.
