About The Royal Journey
The Royal Journey is the Norwegian government’s gift to Their Majesties King Harald and Queen Sonja for their 75th birthdays in 2012. The gift consists of six exhibitions with treasures from the royal collections of art, cultural artefacts, and photographs.
The six exhibitions feature a variety of themes, all dealing with royal journeys, whether understood metaphorically or literally, through selected objects and archive material.
Four major exhibitions will be held in respectively Oslo and Bergen in 2012 and in Tromsø and Trondheim in 2013. In addition, two touring exhibitions will be produced through the National Museum’s nationwide programme. The touring exhibitions will be offered to schools as well as to galleries and museums. They will commence autumn 2012 and will tour until 2014.
The Royal Journey is organized by the National Museum of Art, Architecture, and Design.
