Once upon a time there was a shipowner

In the exhibition “Once upon a time there was a shipowner” you get an insight into the ups and downs of the Norwegian rig industry over more than 50 years. In the exhibition’s “shipping office”, visitors can also find an archive with information about shipping companies that have helped shape the industry and about a number of shipowners and managers throughout the ages. Descriptions of rig accidents and various rig facts are also available.
