Sør-Varanger Museum

Museum in Pasvik River Valley

It's worth a stop at the Strand branch of the Sør-Varanger Museum, which preserves Norway's oldest public boarding school and illustrates the region's ethnic mix. Visit, too, the timber-built Svanvik chapel dating from 1934, and a couple of 19th-century farms, Bjørklund and Nordre Namdalen.
