  • 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
