The Tanum Museum of Rock Carvings is a non-commercial institution managed by the Scandinavian Society for Prehistoric Art.

Voluntary work and financial support are necessary ingredients for the Museum to be able to pursue its activities in a correct manner.

The economy of the Museum is based solely on membership fees and donations.


The activities of the Museum:
  • Registration and documentation of rock carvings. The work is now being concentrated on the carvings which are disintegrating at an increasing rate
  • International centre for rock art documentation. The museum is the only institution in Northern Europe which offers education in the skill of documenting rock art
  • Archives for rock carvings and documentation material, which are open for researchers and anyone else interested
  • International seminars offering lectures and field work with documentation and registration
  • Courses and excursions arranged individually for groups with special interests
  • Guided tours and night excursions to well-known as well as less known localities of rock carvings

Open: Maj - October between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m.
