Training ships

Statsraad Lehmkuhl ble kjøpt til Bergen i 1923, og skulle gjennom mange år gi et kjærkomment utdanningstilbud til ungdom som siktet seg inn på en karriere til sjøs.

When the training ship Statsraad Lehmkuhl celebrated its 90th anniversary in 2004, the museum renewed and extended its collections on training ships with a range of new material from “Statsraaden”, as the vessel is well-known among locals in Bergen. A new temporary exhibition was opened in connection with the vessel’s 100th anniversary in 2014. The Statsraad Lehmkuhl was transferred to Bergen in 1923, and was for many years a welcome education facility for youth seeking a career at sea. Today the Statsraad Lehmkuhl is preservation-worthy, and is in use virtually all-year round. A deck house from «Statsraaden» has been exhibited at the museum since 1999, and in front of it a section of the ship’s deck has been reconstructed with a boom, sail and shroud. The exhibition also includes a dinghy from the «Statsraaden», exhibited between davits from the vessel.
