Gagarín, Kvorning design, and Bright Norway win an international competition about World Heritage exhibitions on behalf of the Norwegian Directorate for Cultural Heritage in Norway.

The contract covers the production and installation of the World Heritage exhibition for Vega World Heritage Center, Norwegian Fjord Centre in Geiranger, and Rock Art of Alta World Heritage Centre, respectively.

Together with our partners and the client, Gagarin will develop six interactive exhibits which will both tell the amazing stories of World Heritage sites in Norway but will also be a window to other UNESCO sites around the world.

The first exhibition is planned to open at the end of 2021 – and the next two in 2022. The client also has an option to establish the exhibits at six more sites in the near future.

The Rock art of Alta. This group of petroglyphs in the Alta Fjord, near the Arctic Circle, bears the traces of a settlement dating from c. 4200 to 500 B.C. The thousands of paintings and engravings add to our understanding of the environment and human activities on the fringes of the Far North in prehistoric times. Photo:

Among other projects Gagarin has been working on lately in Norway are Rockheim, Norway's National Museum of Popular Music located in Trondheim, and Klimahuset, a new museum about climate change, located in Oslo.
