“Not so fancy !”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

This museum is the main museum in this area. But perhaps the most boring, for those not living in the district. The buildings placed here is from different parts of Østfold county. On the best side, there is a small garden with herbs and medicine-plants . During the summer , there will be several arrangements on the property. Those are usually very nice !
