The vessel S/S Restauration is an icon of Norwegian emigration history from Norway to the USA, and is considered the beginning of organized emigration where nearly 1/3 of Norway’s population chose to leave their homeland.

The Restauration Venneforening preserves the vessel S/S Restauration to convey the emigration history from Norway to the USA and coastal cultural history to current and future generations.
