I went to this museum as my father worked for The Leprosy Mission for many years. I was really impressed with the sensitivity of the museum. It is really worth a look.

A very interesting and thought provoking museum. I learnt a lot about how leprosy was treated. Try to get into the church - a fascinating place.

This mediavel hospital is an amazing place. We can learn about leprosy illness, and the fight of Norwegian doctors against it. The place was a hospital from the Mediavel Ages. The little chapel beside the hospital is also amazing.
