Founders and Board of Directors

The Norwegian Industrial Workers Museum Foundation was founded on 3 November 1983. Our objectives are to promote knowledge about working-class culture, hydropower, energy-intensive and electrochemical industry in Norway, local cultural history, local wartime history, and the protection of culture, cultural heritage and art.

The Norwegian Industrial Workers Museum Foundation is Eastern Telemark’s regional museum, comprising the museum at Vemork, Tinn Museum, Heddal Open-air Museum, the Rjukan Line and the Telemark Gallery/Lysbuen Industrial Museum.

The co-founders are the Norwegian Confederation of Trade Unions, the Workers’ Educational Association of Norway, the Norwegian Confederation of Trade Unions, the Electrician and IT Workers Union, the Norwegian Water Resources and Energy Directorate and Tinn municipality.
