Very interesting exhibition on Sarpsborg's history, from the Viking Age (and even earlier) to date. Great overview of the town from the tower. Furthermore, the "1000-year path" leads you through centuries of industrial history related to the great waterfall of the river Glomma.

The city is 1001 years this year. Viking king Olav the Holy as Christian Norway is and the founder of the city. The new exhibition hall holds a lot about him, including Copy of a column in Bethlehem Church. The chapel has many wooden carvings by Olav. Note especially that Olav's struggle with the dragon. The dragon has the Olav crown and has the face of Olav. So maybe there was no evil in the world Olav fought but evil in himself?

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 !

This place is so amazing to visit. Sarpsborg was the first ever Capital of Norway, and its 3rd oldest city with 1000 year celebration in 2016. Get a piece of Sarpsborg, and norwegian history at this place.

Very good place to get a feeling for the history of the area. New Olav's Hall is simple, but provides isight to Sarpsborg's beginnings.
