The projects involved designing a new 1350 sqm museum building, a landscape plan for the surrounding site, parking facilities and a service building.

The project was financed by Alstahaug kommune, Nordland fylkeskommune, Kultur- og kikedepartementet and commercial contributions. The architects, Snøhetta, have continuously been involved in the process since 2001 and until the opening of the museum.

Petter Dass is one of Norway’s most important and beloved National poets. He was the Vicar at Alstahaug church from 1689 until his death in 1707. He was born at Northern Herøy (Dønna), Nordland, Norway. His father was a merchant originally from Dundee, Scotland, Peter Dundas who was a trader along the northern Norwegian coast. His mother was Maren Falch (1619–40). At 13, Petter began attending school in Bergen. He later studied theology at the University of Copenhagen in Denmark.
