NIA - Norwegian Industry Workers Museum

Founded in 1983, the Norwegian Industrial Workers Museum Foundation (NIA) is comprised of six different sites in the Film Rjukan area - all stunning film possibilities. These sites include the Norwegian Industrial Workers Museum, Vemork Power Plant, Tinn Museum, the Heddal Open Air Museum, the Rjukan Line, and further south in the neighboring town of Notodden, the Telemark Gallery and the Lysbuen Industrial Museum.

Each of these sites have their own unique visual properties, and are stunning both from a historical as well as storytelling perspective - and make up the core of the Rjukan-Notodden Industrial Heritage Site that was inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 2015. 

Rjukan-Notodden UNESCO World Heritage Sites

Rjukan and the neighboring town of Notodden to the south were the birthplace of the 2nd Industrial Revolution, where magnificent waterfalls were tamed to create clean hydroelectric energy. 

The UNESCO World Heritage organization in Rjukan, part of the Tinn Municipality, can suggest excellent backdrops and scenes for film projects that include historical and magnificent UNESCO as well as installations and facilities that include the Møsvatn Lake, the Vemork Power Plant, the Såheim Power Plant, Mæl station and ferry port, and the Tinnoset Railway station, and the Ferry Quay and Slipway.
