Heyerdahl Town project in Larvik

The Institute has played an active role in the steering group of the local “Heyerdahl Town” project in Larvik.

One of the aims of the project was to build up an identity for Larvik as “Heyerdahl’s home town” where core values such as innovation, a sense of adventure and an open attitude are central factors. The purchase and restoration work on Thor Heyerdahl’s childhood home marks a milestone in this work.

The Heyerdahl Town project was concluded in 2010.
