Do you ever wonder how the first tourists get around this rugged country? What kind of accommadation
and food they were offered? Why did they come?

The first explores came here to disover our "virgin" and "exotic" landscape which formed the basis for travel
that now flourishes across the country. 

The museum presents the history of Norwegian tourism from the 19th century until today. Here the 
visitors may use interactice screens as they wish. The auditorium offers four short films to choose from.

The museum is situated in the centre of picturesque Balestrand, on the quayside together with three autentic 
buildings from the early 1900s. Café.
