Historical objects from the Hedmark area’s cultural heritage will be stored in the new conservation center that is set to open in Elverum on Thursday.
The price of the Anno Conservation Center amounted to NOK 170 million. It will house 100,000 objects from museums in the Hedmark area.
Anno Museum, formerly Hedmark County Museum, is a consolidation of several large and small museums in the Hedmark area. All museums will contribute objects to the conservation center. The main part comes from the largest museums, which are Domkirkeodden, Skogmuseet, and Glomdalsmuseet, according to the newspaper Østlendingen.
The center will preserve a large part of the museums’ collection, as well as make objects available for exhibitions and research.
Queen Sonja will be present at the opening ceremony on Thursday.
The state covered 90 million of the total expenses of NOK 170 million. The county municipality financed the center with NOK 35 million, as did the municipalities in old Hedmark county. The plot, with a value of 10 million, was transferred from the Glomdal Museum Foundation.
