Thank you for your kind review! We are glad you enjoyed the visit and that we managed share our appreciation for nature with you.
Our visit to the Centre was part of our "Hardangerfjord in a nutshell" tour. As our trip was in January, we were the only visitors to the centre , but there was nothing to worry about. The owner played the panoramic movie "Fjord Mountain Waterfall" even for us two! After that we had to pleasure to walk around all 3 floors full of exhibitions and historical facts bringing us closer to the history and nature of ancient and the development of today's Norway! We highly recommend this place!
Thank you very much for your kind review! We are happy you enjoyed your visit to the Nature Centre and had a memorable experience.
The Norsk Natursenter-Hardanger is a museum about the flora, fauna, fjord, glaciers, waterfalls, and more of the Hardanger Park. In addition to interactive displays there is a short video of a flyover of the area. Across the street from the nature center there is a large gift shop and cafe.
We visited this center as part of a cruise shore excursion with little sense of what awaited us. The focus of the center goes well beyond local flora and fauna, but includes much on those subjects. The high definition video of a flight through the fjords alone was worth seeing as was the video display of 19th century Norwegian painters; the canvases were projected and accompanied by music by Grieg and others, The geology and geography of the area was featured through interactive displays. We were very impressed, especially by the goats on the turf roof..
Great displays and visual exhibits in centre to explore. Children would enjoy the displays and especially the goats grazing on the roof of the shop/ cafe across from the centre.
Very helpful staff that took time to answer questions
This was pretty fun. First you get to see a 20 min video and after there is a little museum made where you walk through. Very much info and very educative!
