  • It is a small museum about the history of Geiranger and the formation of the fjords. The Museum is quite well done and offers at the end of the visit a film about Geiranger

  • A very interesting and great museum that shows the former settlements and nature in Geiranger. This will be the first shown through a beautiful movie, and then you can walk through a trail that shows how people lived in the past.

  • A small center. It gives an excellent picture of life in and around Geiganger. Though 120 crowns entrance.

  • I didn't go into the museum but marvelled at the building's use of simple lines to blend into the landscape and its adjacent waterfall. Lots of seating areas to ponder nature around you, what it doesn't have lots of are washrooms - but I'm sure they would listen to google guides and improve soon. Well-described hiking maps illustrate the options for would-be hikers
  • We were a bit disappointed by this museum. It felt as though they wanted to pack all the social, historical, geographical, architectural, geological significance of the Fjords into this relatively small museum but they wound up being hard pushed to to do any of it justice. The whole thing felt like it was set out backwards: surely you'd start rather than end with how fjords are formed? The slideshow was beautiful but a bit of a wasted opportunity in such a good theatre space. I think it is a relatively new museum and maybe it will improve with time? And on the plus side the simulation of the boat at the dock was really well done. The waterfall walk down to the harbour was fantastic though. Norwegian view point architecture for the win again!
  • This is actually a pretty cool center. The movie is more or less a slide show (of stunningly beautiful views) set to replacing music, but the museum area afterward is really well done.
  • Nice place. There is models and pictures of the fjord and nice spot view.
  • The slideshow was very good. Some nice old buildings inside.
