People kept telling us we should see the nature museum. I was thinking stuffed moose and squirrel. But we had an hour to kill, so why not. What we found was a very cool living history museum inside of the building. It takes you on...More

Informative and nicely set up. I thought the whole museum was very interesting. It does a nice job of showing early life on the fjord to present day . It only takes about 45 mins, and it is worth the visit.

Situated alongside the Union Hotel, and the spectacular waterfall rushing down to the fjord, this small but well put together museum provides a historical insight into early life around the fjord. It covers particularly well the difficult life of the small farmers and the risk...More

The museum is very well planned for most all ages. The exhibits are interesting, well planned out, and give one an excellent understanding of the geology of the area and the history of the settlements over the last thousand-plus years. There is an excellent slide...More

We walked to this attraction from the port via the waterfalls. It was a beautiful day so we fully enjoyed the walk. The center was disappointing as we expected a more educational experience, one providing more information about the fjords. The souvenir shop did not...More
