The Jotun Museum

A visit to Jotun’s museum in Sandefjord is a unique tour of interesting, exciting, funny and tragic events through our nearly 90 yearlong business history.

Welcome to the Jotun Museum!

Did you know that the spray can is a Norwegian invention? In the Jotun museum you can see the prototype of the world's first spray can. You also find the Jotun flag that survived the fierce fire in 1976, color mixing systems before Multicolor, a colour advisor from the early 1900s, and different instruments used in testing of paint. 

You can also hear radio commercials from the 1930's, see old production equipment - and much more. 

A visit to the Jotun museum is a tour through history and shows how Jotun has evolved from being a small local business to becoming an international group with nearly 10 000 employees.  

We have no regular opening hours, but all groups are welcome by appointment. 

Please contact Elisabeth Elgvin Berg for more information, or to make an appointment.
The museum also opens its doors to the public two Saturdays in December. Information will be given in the local press and on Jotun's website.
