We visited this center as part of a cruise shore excursion with little sense of what awaited us. The focus of the center goes well beyond local flora and fauna, but includes much on those subjects. The high definition video of a flight through the...More

Great displays and visual exhibits in centre to explore. Children would enjoy the displays and especially the goats grazing on the roof of the shop/ cafe across from the centre. Very helpful staff that took time to answer questions

This was pretty fun. First you get to see a 20 min video and after there is a little museum made where you walk through. Very much info and very educative!

The film that is shown is entertaining and worth watching. I enjoyed the section where they show how the various countries we're formed over millions of years.

We were staying in Eldfjord and not the interested in going to nature center. So glad we did. Enjoyed the film and the exhibits. Must do if you are in the area. Good store and cafe across the street.

We paid 64€ entry fee for a family of four. The introductory movie had some nice pictures, but was mainly for impressions and with limited information. If you hike or bike the Hardangervidda you would experience exactly those impressions. The remaining concept of the museum...More
