Welcome to

The Falstad Centre

Museum, memorial and human rights center


The Falstad Centre is an engaging meeting place with a powerful history. Here you can learn about the history of prisoners during World War II and about democracy, human rights and current societal issues. Try our digital reconstruction of the prison camp as it appeared in 1945, visit our exhibitions and join in conversations with other visitors in a meaningful atmosphere.

Experience Falstad

Falstad offers both cultural and natural experiences. Stop by on your family road trip or come on an outing with friends to learn about important history.

You can also experience Falstad digitally, by following us on facebook and instagram, and by exploring our resources online.

Virtual artistic residency 2020

From mid-August, we have the pleasure of welcoming visual artist Michael Safaric Branthwaite to a virtual artistic residency at Falstad. Branthwaite is the Course Director for Visual Art within the Department of Art and Design at Staffordshire University. He has previously worked on several site-specific art projects, including at the Treblinka memorial in Poland. In recent years he has shown particular interest in exploring the notion of the object in a digitized society.

75th anniversary of the Liberation: Digital commemoration

In cooperation with the municipality of Levanger, the Falstad Centre arranged a digitally mediated anniversary program on May 8, 2020. For details in English, see presentation on the IHRA web pages. You may see recordings of the event on our Norwegian pages.

Education

The historical site of Falstad is an attractive learning environment. We offer curriculum-focused onsite sessions for school, college and university students, as well as customized workshops and online learning resources.

Most of our teaching activities are in Norwegian, but we do also offer lectures, guided tours and active learning exercises in English.
