Hovden Jernvinnemuseum (Archaeological Museum)


Countless traces of iron extraction sites from ancient times have been found at Hovden. One of the sites unearthed by archaeologists has been enclosed in a structure, and with the aid of sound, lighting, smoke and smells, you can witness how the Vikings extracted iron for use in weapons and farming tools. The footpath along the river from Jernvinnemuseet takes you back to the Iron Age. Information is posted along the trail.
