Jølstra Museum


This is a private museum with thirteen buildings, the oldest from 1611. The museum has over 3000 historical objects in its collection, e.g. old tapestries and other textiles, fiddle-player Anders Viken's favourite instrument, and wooden sculptures by Johannes Fossheim. There is also an art gallery with items for sale. The old buildings and barn can be rented for parties. Jølstra Museum has its own fishing centre, which offers fishing trips where the guide can guarantee a catch!
