  • Mineral Park in itself is great, but it doesn't help when staff do not get any service training at all. It didn't seem like they knew what they were going to do. We were number 3 in the queue to get bought an ice cream. After 10 minutes we gave up the 2 that stood in the box had enough to do with to create vaffelrøre and to wash. The same was with the wash we stood over the trench 15 min to get bought a bag of sand and stone to wash. There was no queue. Seems like the 2 that worked there was not interested in the customers. The Lady in the stone store was the exception. Too bad for it could have been so much better with a little training and initiative of the employees. Agree with high prices

  • In addition to that, you also have to pay for the parking lot as is the entrance for animals already. covers only exhibition and rental of a canoe or anything like that. Everything else cost the pork as well and could not be paid there. Then had to go back to stand in line again. Silly thing. Lousy food on site. Just burgers and fried junk. Many youth with summer job there, understandably. But smilekurs they had had all one. Realize that it's boring with a summer job. But give it a try in any case without to reel off some rather caustic comments. If it's brilliant Sun that's it a lovely place to spend the day and swim there. Great scenery and interesting collection if one is a little steingale. Missing info and selection of the collection. QR code only on a few things. But fun. Do you have too many money that must be used up, so it's a great place.

  • Stopped by just to see the mineral collection, asked if a discount but it was out of the question. The exhibit was nice but it lacked information about the stones. Have read in retrospect that one could get info with QR reader but that we were not told when we came. In addition to the expensive entrance you have to pay for parking. Had expected more.

  • It's very cool, but super expensive! You can buy 5 activities for 250nok (one costs 60 nok), but honestly you're better off just buying for the specific activities you want. 5 is a lot..
  • ★★★★★ Nice center and museum too. For most kids however the minerals are boring who are better of in the mining display. Next to lake and camping site. So many options to recreate here.
  • Worth a visit if you have free time to spare and enjoy a casual walk about looking at rocks.
  • Nice place
  • Super
