(Roed Gaard) Roed Farm is the place for cultural experiences for the whole family! The main building is almost 300 years old and is situated in beautiful cultural landscape. If you would like a guided tour of the main building and the lovely rose garden, contact us for further details. We also accompany for private parties in the old potato storage or outside in the garden. Roed Gaard is a lively, cultural environment with many artists who have their own workshops and stalls, where you can buy their work. You will also find galleries specialising in art and craft and picture art. We won’t settle for just that though. We also have glass blowers, jewellery artists, design, wallpaper, guitar and accordion makers, photographers and a workshop where picture frames are made. In the storehouse you will find great antiques and in the farm shops you will be able to buy homemade chocolate, learn about how soap is made in the soap works and go back in time to learn about the art of weaving in the weaving house. In our café we serve freshly baked pastries. During the summer season, there are many events that take place, such as Concerts and our very own Roed Rock. In the early morning of 11th March 2010, the barn at Roed Gaard burnt down. Several animals succumbed to the fire. The music school, Gallery Kvinnelist and photographer Helge Ek's studio, all situated at the farm, burnt down too. Millions of kroner worth of art were destroyed in the fire.
Location. Small shops, art exhibition, cafe, Beautiful place. A nursery on the premises. An English" shop, with classic British-style clothes. Not to expensive, either. An antique shop. Nice cafe with good, tasty cakes.

We randomly chose Moss as a day trip from Oslo. What a wonderful surprise. The town is very walkable, and after strolling around the pretty town for an hour we happened to pass by this museum and went in.
Because we were the only visitors on that cold winter day, Vibeke gave us a personal and very informative tour of the museum, explaining not only what we saw in the museum (which had once been a factory) but also the many now-closed industrial buildings we had seen on our walk.
Although we barely read Norwegian, some signs are in English and Vibeke is fluent. In any case the visuals tell the story.
In addition to the interesting, informative displays we felt very warmly welcomed. We highly recommend Moss and this museum as a place to visit as a day trip from Oslo. The train station is just a few blocks from the central business district, and perhaps a ten minute walk from the museum.

When you walk here, there is an unique atmospjhere because it shows that Moss has been an important industrial city in Norway. It is an air of history. If one goes to Cafe Riis, one can see huge Tools in the ceiling which shows that the building has been a factory before it became a cafe. The cinema is in the area. It is also very centrally located in Moss.

When in Moss, you have to go to Jeløya, and you have to go to Alby. When on Alby, you have to go to ViDA glass hut. The make very, very nice things there, on site. The glass artists do perform their artcraft on site, you can see them work, and you can buy a nice thing of glass to bring home or as a gift. Highly recommemnded!!

A hop and a skip from gågata, good choice of books. Lovely interior design and friendly staff. Don't visit as often as I'd like, but when I do I'm always happy I did.

The Konventionsgarden was built in 1778 and owned by the Anker family. In 1814, Norway broke away from the union with Denmark and wrote and signed its own constitution. However, Norway was brought into a union with Sweden. King Christian Fredrik stayed at the Konvention for many weeks during the negotiations with the Swedish crown prince Karl Johan. On the 14th August, “the Konvention at Moss” was signed. It saved the Norwegian constitution and the Parliament house. The Konvention is available to for public viewing only when advertised. The tourist office Visit Moss has launched a phone service, where you can listen to information about the Konvention. To hear information about it, ring 53 00 12 00 and dial the code 5243 when requested. The service costs that of a local call.

Bytarnet was built as a gift to the city of Moss in 1920
A walk around Moss must pass the BYTÅRNET. It is an old structure placed with good veiw over the city and the fjord. It is placed in a park beside a school, there are no service or things to buy there, just a nice place to walk or cycle by on a nice day.
