In the 1900s, the mechanization hit the forest industry. The exhibition shows how muscle power was replaced with mechanical power in the forest.
The exhibition displays the Norwegian forest industry through history. You will learn how the forests in Norway has developed since the last ice age, and that the coniferous forests are important for the ecological balance in the world.
A separate room is dedicated to pictures and sound. One exhibition is called “In our forests” and is a poetic tale about the joys of exploring the forest and the mountain. The other one is called “Forest” and consists of a series of photos by the well-known photographer Johan Brun, accompanied by newly composed music.
There is also a room filled with activities for children. Here they can build, read, draw and try the slide.
