Cultural value

The Holmeegenes collection has cultural value

Holmeegenes represents frozen urban history, architectural history, garden history and political history. In addition to the buildings themselves, the inventory is of particular cultural and historical value, with a large collection of artifacts from the period World War I to the 1950s.

Stavanger Museum manages the Holmeegenes' objects and fixtures, and the municipality of Stavanger is responsible for the restoration of the main buildings on the property as well as parts of the garden.

When the restoration is complete, the goal is to return the inventory to single rooms in the housing section and constitute an exhibition of residential environments from the first half of the 20th century.
