Camera obscura

During the summer we will also arrange tours down to Honørbrygga, near the Royal Garden Hotel to visit our camera obscura. If you'd like to find out what it's like to be inside a photo camera, this is something you should't miss out on.

NB! Since the camera requires a lot of light to provide good pictures, the visit will be announced on the same day, or you can contact 72 90 90 07.
