    Little surprise this Museum, that will enchant both young and old. Vintage models, reconstructions, interactive areas and for children, a café and a gift shop. Well worth a visit.

    We were hesitant about going to this museum and actually only did so because we mistakenly thought it was part of an entrance fee to see the adjacent waterfalls and observation decks. What a great sur...  more »

    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

    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

    Nice museum to learn about the history of the town. You can finish it in 30 min.

    Talks about history of the area including farmers, their houses and gives geological information

    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!
