Welcome to the Industriarbeidarmuseum (The museum of the industrial workers). Here you can experience several exhibitions.

  • ‘Slik budde me før’ – This is how we lived

Have a look at the apartements from the 1920’s and 1960’s.

Here you see how the industrial workers, working at the fabric in Sauda, lived. It is as if you enter the house of a family that still lives here.

Welcome ‘home’!


  • ‘Under Røyken – om livet i Åbøbyen’, Under the smoke, about life in Åbøbyen

Welcome to our exhibition that we opened in May 2019. You will enter right into the home of the families that lived in Åbøbyen. The

exhibition tells you about family life in the area, social status and their differences within the Sauda society, architecture, about being a

factory worker etc.
