In this article I look more closely at how Kven culture and history gained their place in museums and what processes led to the foundation of these museums. In addition, I shall attempt to identify how Kven culture and history have been portrayed and which accounts of the Kven have been presented by these museums. In this context it is instructive to look more closely at why these museums may be understood to be upholders of tradition, places of remembrance and narrators.
