Past the cinema room, you'll be able to follow our historical pop walk. Visual imagery, sound clips and interactive technology provide a narration through the history of Norwegian pop music and pop culture over the past century.
Tip: As you make your way up, you'll notice that on the left-hand side, we've portrayed performers and artists within each genre and era. On the right-hand side, you'll find the developments that were taking place in the background within society, media and technology.
When you’ve completed the pop walk, you will come to our “Urørt Eggs.” Stick your head inside the bulbs to check out the highly recommended, up-and-coming and unsigned artists who’ve been picked up by the online platform urørt.no, a branch of the Norwegian broadcasting corporation, NRK. “Urørt” is a Norwegian abbreviation for “untouched”, i.e. unsigned artists.
