This Wednesday we had thegrand Halloween flavored opening of our new storage facility! 80 people made the trip by bus to the grotto, among them the Director of the University Museum of Bergen and the Prorector of the University of Bergen. The day featured several speeches before Prorector officially opened the facilities by cutting the balloon ribbon.

The Director and the Prorector then cut the cake. A picture on the cake displayed an embarrassing photo of a messy draw and was cut to symbolize a new and well-organized era in the collections.
