The museum building is being renovated

The main building is being renovated and therefore has to close until the year 2023. The University of Agder and Statsbygg is renovating the building, with new ventilation, electricity and fire equipment. Other buildings and outdoor areas will also be upgraded with regard to universal design. However, the botanical garden is always open! And at springtime next year, our new greenhouse is opening!
