Museums and exhibitions

Norway offers a wide variety of museums and exhibitions for all tastes. Many outdoor museums are really old buildings that have been preserved for posterity. Indoor museums range from large national museums to tiny museums specializing in a particular area.
Often, museums offer special temporary exhibitions or activities each day, the public can participate. Across the country there are art galleries, artists presenting traditional works as well as experimental works.

Tourist attractions

Norway has lots of beautiful churches, many built of stone. But of course the most common are the wooden churches. There are also a number of fortresses, especially in big cities. Norway has few castles in the true sense of the word, but has many great mansions. (“Castles” of Norwegian folk tales were probably the large houses of wealthy farmers).
Most historic buildings can be visited, but their program can vary greatly from one another. You may want to see the place where the Norwegian Constitution was signed or the native house of a famous writer. May want to explore a house or a Viking site of the Second World War. Search everywhere go local tourist information. You may accidentally give more than an interesting place where you would not think!
Norway has endless vistas, breathtaking landscapes. Mountainous regions and large plates full of magnificent peaks. Fjords that were formed together with the withdrawal of the glaciers are among the most spectacular scenery in the world.
Eastern region of Norway and Trøndelag have vast forests, while the shores of southwest and far north offers long sandy beaches. Norway is a country of rivers, streams and impressive waterfalls, which made it famous worldwide. Twenty-one national park offers nature lovers can admire the wild landscapes. White caps of the glaciers can be seen among the mountains, especially in western and northern regions of the country.
For animal lovers, organized numerous “safari” to photograph elk, oxen, musk, whales, beavers and eagles. Norway’s ornithological wealth makes it an ideal place for bird lovers.
