The concept behind the exhibitions is called Peacefront. The concept behind our exhibitions does not stand still, it is a call to action. The opportunity lies in the rare possibility given by the mandate of the Narvik Centre for War and Peace.
A possibility is created to combine content and feelings, past and future, in ways that are unprecedented in other Norwegian exhibitions. The exhibition combines a large collection of historic artifacts with bold and challenging reflections on the nature of conflicts based on current research and debate.
The exhibitions are divided into three floors named Attack, War and Zona.
The headlines of the exhibitions that can be found in the museum are:
Stories from individuals that took part in the war told through recordings
The last part of the exhibition is called Zona. The Zona has its own place in time and space, and is not your everyday historic museum exhibition. The mood of Zona can hardly be described in words, you have to experience it. Using historic artifacts in combination with state of the art AV-equipment, design and scenography we hope to engage in an open debate about topics related to war and conflict. Some of them are:
We have tried our best to make the exhibition accessible and interesting to young people, but we do not think that this should stand in the way for other an interesting experience for others.
