One of the most popular tourist attractions of the Norwegian town of Horten is Preus Museum. This national museum is dedicated entirely to photography, and is divided into two sections - Technical collection and Photographic collection. The first section traces the development of cameras, from the quaint camera obscura to ultra-modern digital cameras. The second section features an eclectic assortment of photographs, with the themes ranging from nature and wildlife to performing arts and fashion. This site is an absolute must-see!
Royal Norwegian Navy Museum is a unique museum situated in the heart of the town of Horten in Norway. Established in 1853, the museum strives to conserve and showcase relics, artifacts, documents and photographs appertaining to the Royal Norwegian Army. The site also has an impressive collection of ships, paraphernalia related to the naval force, and models of ships. Ship logs dating back to 1814 are also carefully preserved. Don't give this place a miss at any cost if you happen to be in Horten.
