In the old days getting the timber from the forests to the factories, the easiest way was to float them down the rivers. I still remember my geography book from 1964 telling about this, and that Glomma river (Norway’s longest river) was the main source of floating the timber. It was handles at Fetsund Lenser, where many men risked their lives to get the timber into the right position not to block the rest of the timbers. The museum has walkways in the river and small houses with information about tools, workers, and the processes. There is also an indoor museum with more information. Absolutely worth a trip for young ones and adults alike.

Fetsund Timber Booms museum is unique, discover how the timber were collected in the river and floated through the lake on its way to the sea port in Fredrikstad. Timber has given bread and butter to many inhabitants in the area through saw mills and other industry. The museum is somewhat different from other museums, stretching a long bit if the river bank of Glomma, its a walk in the park and also a walk in the river (on timbers), art displayed in floating huts and information centers.

An amazingly nice place in the summer. Great museum. Also try the good waffles. Something you really should not miss is to take a trip with the boat MS Øyern. Incredibly nice trip out in the delta. You can buy beer and wine aboard the boat. If you are traveling from Oslo, take the L14 train to Kongsvinger. Disembarking at Fetsund train station. It takes about 20 minutes. It's a little walk along the river to Fetsund lenses. Around 10 minutes walk.

Industrial museum showing the history where the timber was transported by the river Glomma to the sawmills. Here you can see a colletion of old boats and walk on the water as the workers once did. A uniq to enjoy nature next to the biggest river delta in northern Europe
