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.

It's not the biggest place but very cosy. Here you can get som good info on how it was in the middle ages through the years and up to our age. Take the kids on a treasure hunt in Viking history ett. A tall tower with a greater view.

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?
