Egge Museum


This open-air farm complex lies 2.5km north of town. If you've visited this kind of museum (ie traditional farm buildings, wandering animals and volunteers in traditional dress), you won't find much that's new here, but the kids should enjoy it. On the same hilltop site are several Viking burial mounds and stone circles.
