Worth the drive from Trollhattan to get here. Great cafe and really well priced gift shop. A short info film and a small interpretive centre. The various sites of the rock carvings are spread over some miles and the reception staff hand out maps showing how to drive/walk/cycle to the sites. There are info boards in English at all sites. It is all free. Interpretive centre has wheelchair access but otherwise, some mobility is needed for all the sites. There is a farm and mock up of how the Iron Age people lived in the area - with farm animals in the summer months. They have also invented a (very creative) story line for the inhabitants of this area at the time, which is at least likely to help keep children's attention in the centre.
I was unsure on arrival about some of the rock carvings being painted in - but having been there I can now see the value. Many are not - and work is ongoing to try and save both painted and non-painted from being lost to the elements. You appreciate their value so much more when you can see the painted ones and realise how unique and special they are. Take the hike up the site next to the museum shop to get up to the burial cairns - great views - but watch out for the ants - they bite!
