This place gives you a good idea of what life was like farming and surviving in this area before the advent of a usable road system.

The visitor center is ok, with the usual movie and gift shop. It's the walk up to it that's so nice. From the town below, you follow alongside a very large waterfall with very nice photo opportunities along the way. The walkway is well built with stairs and railings.

First off, I have to admit I did not pay to go inside the exhibit. I peeked, and could see it kind of portrays life in the fjords over time. Still, the modern building has attractive features, set atop a cascade waterfall. There's a gift shop that offers coffee and sweets as well as a variety of books that are more museum fare, than ubiquitous gift shop stuff. Outside, are areas for kids and adults that reflect on the fjord traditions. Towards the back point of the building is the end/start of a path to/from the town center that follows the cascade waterfalls railings. This has the modern tone of rust and stainless steel one sees elsewhere in this region, with walkways and stairs leading down. Worth a swing by, and kids would enjoy the exhibit I'm sure.
