DigitaltMuseum provides access to more than 5 million objects from over 250 museums and collections in Norway and Sweden. The DigitaltMuseum API offers data search to the Digital Museum, display of images and access to XML for objects. Search for artifacts by object type (architecture, fine art, photograph, person, etc.) or name, title, classification, material, producer, technique, event and more. The collections can be used for studies, teaching, articles, genealogy and more. API documentation is in the Norwegian language.
