  • Informative, nicely done and steeped in history. Parking is available free of charge. A small bridge, it is then walk 5 minutes to the former power station or present Museum. Who will be interested is for history and technology here at his own expense come. We were thrilled. Movies the story describes at the time of the 2nd World War. Unfortunately only in Norwegian and English. Old generators are available in the "body". Otherwise, many details of the industrialization and the "career" in the exhibition can be found.

  • Good place to visit, and by the way give yourself a good hike. It seems to have been a major hydroelectric power plant (perhaps the most important in Europe at the time of World War II. The Nazis dominated it for a while). I have no photos for now.
  • Fantastic 2.ww history, and beautiful building and you have to drive over cablebridge, scary but really something you gone love :-)
  • Cool museum! They asked us to join a game and get a "premium" in the end if we get all right answers. 😉 Funny way to get in touch with History! 🤓
  • If it wasn't for a temporary exhibition about communism/socialism that managed to not mention a thing about the horrors under communist rule in almost every country ever touched by said ideology... But hopefully this is just a temporary thing, because the rest of the museum was awesome.
  • Ser the place White the heroes of the Telemarken bombed the nazi production of heavy water. Great museum thats combines second Word war and norweigian industrial history
