The Norwegian Forest Museum is the only one of its kind in Norway; dedicated to forestry, hunting, fishing and outdoor life. The museum building spans over three floors and has a large variety of exhibitions. The aquarium is home to Norway’s biggest collection of sweet water fish. There are also exciting exhibitions about for example hunting and trapping, as well as forestry through the ages.
However, the most innovative exhibition is perhaps the Fantastic Tree, which is a feast of light and colour. The exhibition is unlike anything else in the world and explains the photosynthesis through a 8 meters tall tree sculpture.
The museum grounds cover a vast area filled with footpaths, picnic areas, a fishing pond for children, playgrounds and historic buildings to discover. You can even take a stroll over the suspension bridge to explore the neighbouring Glomdal Museum.
Annually, the Norwegian Forest Museum plays host to the Nordic Hunting and Fishing Days. The festival has been going strong for more than 50 years and has become Norway’s most important arena for hunters, fishers and outdoor lovers.
