Egersund Fayancemuseum
The Egersund Fayancemuseum is a museum that shows the production of the A / S Egersunds Fayancefabriks Co. (1847-1979).

The factory
For 132 years, the factory provided the Norwegian people with ceramic. A / S Egersunds Fayancefabriks Co. had an extensive production with a plenty of different models and designs. This wide production was also influenced by several flows of the world of art and fashion.

The factory, which name was Egersunds Potteri (in English: Egersunds ceramic) at the beginning, was opened in 1847. The founder Johan Feyer learned his trade through his studies at Newcastle-upon-Tyne. During a very short period of time, the factory proved to be the biggest producer of ceramic.

The creation of the museum
After the factory was closed in 1979, the Dalane Folkmuseum took over the factory's archive and collection. That formed the basis for the Egersund Fayancemuseum, which came into existence in 1986. In 2010, the museum moved in new, modern premises in the Fabrikkgaten 2, where the factory was originally standing.

The Egersund Fayancemuseum shows a selection of articles from the history of the production facilities. It also shows, how the Fayance factory formed a corner post of the city of Egersund. The museum is handicaped accesibly designed. It has a seperate part for blind and partially sighted persons, where all visitors have the opportunity to touch and feel the artifacts.

In the foyer of the museum you will find a small shop. The Egersund Fayancemuseum is a department of the Dalane Folkmuseum.

The departments of the Dalane Folkmuseum have extended opening hours during the summer season (23 June to 1 September). You will find the opening hours below. Outside the opening hours, the museum opens on appointment.
