«Growing Up In The Richest Country In The World - Money As A Way In»
We have visited Stavanger Museum during our stay in Stavanger, and the important exhibition «Growing Up In The Richest Country In The World». The exhibition is based on the most recent figures from Statistics Norway and other sources, and it shows how money work for children and youth as an important factor for friendship and community.
It is expencive growing up in Norway. The exhibition shows prices for typical trendy clothes and accesorize for children and youth, and what normal children and youth take part in of activities, holidays abroad, school trips, school dance, birthdays. Children and adolescents in low-income families have small opportunity to participate in organised activities.
