The Rock Art of Alta

Permanent Exhibitions

The exhibition focuses especially on the part of the rock art that is not accessible to visitors, but one will also find some well known motifs from the accessible panels in Hjemmeluft.

The exhibition is based on the documentation work that the museum has conducted over the last few years, and it displays several big and spectacular panels that are not accessible to visitors, such as Kåfjord, Storsteinen, Amtmannsnes 2b, and Bergheim 1 and Ole Pedersen 1a in Hjemmeluft. 

Three real rock art boulders are also displayed, one from the World Heritage area in Hjemmeluft, and two from isnestoften, ca 45 km from Hjemmeluft. The latter has not been included on the World Heritage List.
