Iddis Museum and Wandering Stavanger

After visiting four of the MUST exhibitions this day, I visited one more in the evening, Iddis. I then did a little more wandering about in Stavanger. Iddis MuseumJust as the Iddis Museum is one of the class of museums collectively referred to as MOST, Iddis is also two museums in one. ( And when you get inside you find there’s a third. ) It’s a real images doll of galleries, I tell ya. Iddis ‘ galleries would likely exist at the micro level if I had a strong electron microscope. Sometimes not. Ruins on the Iddis Norway Printing Museum The Scandinavian Printing Museum and the Scandinavian Canning Museum are the two galleries within the Iddis Museum that are named in the marketing materials. The mark out before says that “iddis” is the Stavanger word for “label”. But that’s the local pronunciation. The Scandinavian expression is “iddikett”. Come number. ” Label” provides a strong, very much amazing, hint as to how they link the two exhibitions together. Norwegian Printing Museum ( Iddis ) The Norwegian Printing Museum’s exhibits are arranged largely chronologically within Iddis. It begins with a conversation of figurative languages. Two exact rune stones are included in this display. Additionally, it revealed a fact that surprised me that I was n’t aware of. It said that there are at least 85, 568 special figures, each of which is a phrase, in the Chinese language. How can anyone figure out even a small portion of those diagrams? I have a hard time remembering a few hundred English phrases that are written in the unaccented Roman language. The exhibits then move on to examine printing machines and another mass-produced printing machines as they advanced over time. A sturdy printing press with a device akin to the Gutenberg push from 1440 is one of the first shows. Artistically, but perhaps implausibly, pages are displayed as if they had flown off the media. With smaller circuits, each site hangs from the roof. The chapters are arranged in a series of lines coming out of the media. The displays next advance in ways beyond “print” as a whole. ( The museum is small, so there is only a small amount of information, and the detail of the chronological progression is course. ) The shows discuss the computer and video media when they are displayed in contemporary settings. It states the clear, i. e., that the web provides tremendous benefits in being able to transmit information widely, swiftly, and easily. A NS poster in the Iddis Norway Printing Museum’s Propaganda temporary show It is, according to the text, a penalty because it also allows the spread of disinformation and conspiracy theories in a large, quick, and affordable manner. This part is accompanied by a continuous loop videos. It’s even 30 seconds longer. Donald Trump claims that climate change is a ruse to make money in the majority of the movie. This did not give me a happy idea. Quite the opposite. As I write this, it’s then just under four weeks until the United States holds its 2024 presidential primaries. It seems likely that Americans may vote that fool as their leader if the recent polls are accurate and the latest community sentiment holds up until the election. ” Harrumph” does n’t even begin to cover it. Grrr. That’s not even close to expressing my thoughts or feelings regarding Donald Trump. But this move on. Display on the intergalactic wall between the Canning and Printing Museums Iddis’s Norway Printing Museum’s temporary show. It’s titled” Propaganda”. Between 1933 and 1945, it covers advertising in Norway. The National Unity Party ( NS ) of Norway, which first participated in elections in 1933, is the subject of a large portion of the exhibit. It was a Nazi-backed and totalitarian group. It won just two percent of the ballot in the 1936 vote. However, when Germany invaded Norway, it became the sole legitimate group there. Additionally, the display discusses how advertising can be used to manipulate the general public. A display of cylindrical cans with labels printed directly on them can be seen on the wall that contains the door between the Iddis ‘ Printing and Canning museums. The printed method used to print is described in the corresponding words. And so the transition is from one gallery to the next. Norwegian Canning Museum ( Iddis ) Despite the cylindrical cans on the segue wall, the Norwegian Canning Museum concentrates on the cans that are used to transport small fish like sardines. There is a lot of outdated equipment in the museum that was used to mark the tins and cover the fish before being used to pack them. The Canning Museum’s sign stated that the process of putting the fish into tins has n’t changed throughout history. If it’s accurate, wrapping was and still is done by hand in the first weeks of fermentation and still is. People who do the packaging are called “leggersker”. The quickest of them can pack a might in 4- 6 hours. The Iddis Scandinavian Canning Museum’s fermentation equipment is also hand-packed, which is odd. How many tins of tiny canned fish like tuna and other are sold annually? Although, then that I think of it, the gallery’s articles is about just Norwegian canning. Sometimes it’s automated in other countries. Every iron of little fish produced around the world is nevertheless hand-packed, which would blow the head, or at least my quickly boggled mind. I doubt that, but I do n’t know. A lender of fish-smoking burners is also housed at the Scandinavian Canning Museum in Iddis. The label that comes with them claims that what makes Norway fish special is that they are hot-smoked with wood, giving them an oaky flavor. I read in one of my manuals, or even TripAdvisor, I forget which, that they smoke seafood at the museum on the first Sunday of every quarter. The second Sunday in July is now. They were n’t smoking fish when I was there. The Scandinavian method of smoking is described as a two-step process in the words that came with the burners. It said the first step takes 30 minutes, but it did n’t give the duration of the second step. The next step is at a higher temperature, 100 degrees, so maybe it’s shorter. ( This is n’t the United States, so I assume that’s 100 degrees Celcius. ) I missed the fish because I arrived in the evening, so it might be because they may have smoked it in the morning. Or perhaps the information I read was out of time. Or maybe it always was right. Whatever the case, I did n’t get to see the ovens in action. Remember that the Iddis Museum is located just a little street away from Strandgate? A sign that reads “vre Strandgate 90″ appears at the back of the Iddis Norway Canning Museum. ( That’s how they do street numbers here, after the street name, not before it. ) As you probably guessed, Øvre Strandgate 90 is a home on Øvre Strandgate Street and it’s normal of homes on that road in Stavanger’s ancient city. The house is currently governed by Iddis. The city gate is closed. The rear door leads to it from the rest of the Iddis Museum. A place invre Strandgate 90The brochure forvre Strandgate 90 indicates that the house has several brands. It was known as the” Thilo House” at the beginning of its existence. The home that built it was known by the name Thulo. Later, for many years, it was rented out to widows and unmarried women and became known as the” Widow House” and the” Bower House “.Today, it’s been outfitted with furnishings from the 1920s, and is meant to represent the years of two distinct decades, the 1920s and the 1960s, when many of the inhabitants in the houses of Gamle Stavanger ( Old Stavanger ) were people who worked in the canning factories. The brochure claims that all of the furniture in the house dates back to the 1920s because, surprisingly, when they built the house, it was simpler to purchase furniture from the 1920s than the 1960s. As a result, the house is now known as the” Workers ‘ House.” More wandering in StavangerA streets along my wider wanderingAfter I finished with Iddis, I had already seen all the suggested attractions in Skavanger that had even a passing interest in what was most likely to be on my two handbooks and TripAdvisor, and that was the majority of the ones that were listed in those options. So I continued on my wandering. I made the same route in the towns on either side of the harbor that I thoroughly enjoyed during my first time and a half around. However, this day, I went a little further inland. I had previously been to a neighborhood south of the district on the south side of the harbor. This new village ( new to me ) was not as wonderful as the Stavanger regions that I’d wandered through before, but, for the most part, it’s not unsightly and there are some very beautiful, if not interesting, properties. I said,” for the most part” no ugly. I did pass by a number of abandoned and graffiti-covered homes, but I’m not sure how many of them were. I believe it was in the purchase of three or four. But I think that’s likely transitory. A sizable plot of land, perhaps several housing plots, was quickly tucked away behind that row of houses, which had been surrounded by building fences. I’m assuming that the abandoned homes may add that adjacent plot of land that will be bulldozed and developed into I have no idea what. But that’s only a think. Another road to the north of where I’m wandering further. I’ll keep Stavanger tomorrow by bus for my final Norway stop. I’ll probably go for a bit of a walk in the morning to stretch my old legs since the bus does n’t leave until close to noon. But since I’ve run out of noteworthy areas to write about around, I’ll probably just wander around the ones I’ve previously enjoyed and written about. So I’m not sure if I’ll publish an entrance here tomorrow morning. If the vehicle is on day, I’ll obtain to my next location around 4: 30 in the evening. I’ll probably write a post from there, but because I wo n’t have a lot of time to do stuff, the post will likely be short. It’s time for a recap of my time in the city because this is almost surely my next article from Stavanger. ( I’ll write a bonus post and include a link back to this one for the summary if anything exciting unexpected occurs here in the morning tomorrow. ) Stavanger SummaryFirst out, let me say, that, for some mysterious reason, my mind keeps wanting to form the town’s name as” Stavenger,’ no” Stavanger. ” My spellchecker has learned Stavanger, but not Stavenger, so I do n’t think any of the typos slipped through in my posts from here, but if so, please accept my apologies for that. I pretty much enjoyed Stavanger. It’s a wonderful area, especially the ones that are close to the harbor and the surrounding areas. Plus, there was that Lysefjord journey from Stavanger, which was wonderful. I probably could have done with a half-day less of this because I ran out of places to see. I did n’t regret spending that much time in the harbor and nearby areas, but I really enjoyed taking in the atmosphere. There are at least a couple of treks you can take to higher places if you’re younger than I am and have less of a fear of heights than I do. Those two hikes, to Pulpit Rock, which I mentioned in the Lysefjord cruise post, and Kiragbolten, which I have n’t mentioned in these pages, both start a bit of a drive from Stavanger. However, there are other ways to get to the starting points that do n’t necessarily require renting a car, such as booking a guided hike that includes transportation to the starting point. Suddenly, from what I’ve read, the climax of each is a very voluptuous place, which is a concern for me. However, if you’re never acrophobic and are up for what I’ve read are only moderately challenging excursions, you might want to spend a day or two more in Stavanger than I did. Additionally, you might acquire additional boat trips. In summary, I’m really thrilled I came to Stavanger. Tags: Museum, Travel, Yearning Prior Article
