This was a nice find, right on the edge of Geiranger. The museum covers the history and geology of the fjord. It starts with a very nice slide presentation. The exhibits were well-done - a few of which might find a home in Walt Disney World or Universal Studios. The museum is also a start point for a boardwalk walk along a river feeding into the fjord. The coffee shop had good coffee and snacks.

One of the best museums i’ve been to actually, don’t miss out on your Geiranger visit to learn about and experience the lives of those coming here first, and the struggles they had. But also lots and lots of Photoshop, films and exhibits to enjoy. And a boat rocking with the waves.

We enjoyed the fjord center very much and learned lots. The old POSTBÅT was great 😀 The friendly staff even let us stay much later than the closing hour at 4 pm (which was too early, we think). A drawback also that the café only served waffles and sweets, no real food.

The visitor center is ok, with the usual movie and gift shop. It's the walk up to it that's so nice. From the town below, you follow alongside a very large waterfall with very nice photo opportunities along the way. The walkway is well built with stairs and railings.

This interesting and well presented informative centre should be visited as a before or after the Geirangerfjord cruise, as the information on each complements the other.
The Centre is a display of life in the early days of Geiranger showing how the early farmers lived and survived, how the fjord was created and with a history up the present day.
The real life presentations, for example, a reconstruction of an early farmhouse are quite good.
The entry price of 120NOK (about 20AUD) is a bit steep but after all, this is Norway, where, to my mind, everything is expensive😀.

Free day in Geiranger, as we had decided against any of the excursions available from our cruise. The Fjordsenter is a short and attractive walk from the landing stages, through some of the older buildings in the village, with some attractive shops. It can be accessed either by walking up on the road, or alternatively from a long flight of metal steps leading up the side of a spectacular waterfall; we chose the latter, in spite of the potential harm to our knees! Well worth the effort, as the higher you climb, the more stunning the views become looking down the fjord.
The centre itself is a modern building acting as both a historical and geological explanation of Norway's fjords, and also has an attractive cafe and shop. Displays include a number of reconstructions of old farm buildings, wildlife, the development of tourism from the 19th century, and don't miss the part reconstruction of one of the first steamers to ply the local waters (sea legs useful). We were advised to begin our visit by watching the slideshow in the lecture theatre - an excellent introduction to the rest of the exhibitions. Very enjoyable experience.

The exhibition into the life in the fjord is worth a visit. The cafe is great especially on a cold day. The shop has a wide range of gifts.

I was skeptical of the fjord center but the 10 minute slide show proved me wrong. It was beautiful pictures of the fjord in the four seasons. It had me jealous of the beautiful blue skies as we were there on a rainy day. The center has an interactive museum with exhibits of what the area was like over 100 years ago. It even has a rocking ship and an actual hut where people lived. It also provides background on the dangers of the fjords on the residents due to risks of mud slides and avalanches. The gift shop sells freshly made waffles and they smell delicious. You can walk up to the center using the stair walkway next to the falls but it is uphill. The hop on hop off bus will also take you to the center.

The building is nice, the slideshow featuring the various seasons was gorgeous and on a very big screen, but the exhibits were not all that impressive. I would have resented the cost of admission if I had paid out of pocket. That said, the very best part is that it is perfect starting place to walk back to town along the wonderful river and by the amazing waterfalls.

Geiranger is a very small village catering to cruise ships and visitors. It is all about nature and the fjord. The village has a few gift shops and a few restaurants and a campground. We found this museum to be a delight as it provided additional activities during the day and was quite educational.
