  • Amazing! Such a beautiful building and a well run facility. Our guide was very friendly and informative. The exhibition was interesting despite the text only being in Norwegian. The cafeteria is a great place to grab a light lunch before heading back out on the road.
  • What an incredible building. Really, really, worth seeing. We went there 22 July 2016, and spent a beautiful afternoon there. There's also a small cafeteria close by, and a few souvenirs to buy if you wish. Unforgettable.
  • Totally unique experience. Amazing building, more than 800 years old, awesome artworks. Must see.
  • We went there on our way to Forsand and make a stop here at the church. Nice place with a small cafe nearby.
  • The largest medieval church built in the 13th century. All wood, tong and groove, pegs. Really cool.
