Along the way, I'll give you some insight into the history of the city, and tell you what makes its people some of the country’s friendliest. I’ll also recommend some stops along the way. <br><br>The highlights of our walk include:<br><br>• The friendly rivalry between Fredrikstad and its twin city Sarpsborg<br>• What makes Fredrikstad Northern Europe's best preserved fortified town<br>• Why you might hear a glockenspiel ringing out in the town<br>• Why Fredrikstad has a French influence<br>• How to say hello in the local dialect<br><br>So let's take a walk together and find out what Fredrikstad really has to offer.

We saw quite a lot by peering into the windows. It looked like the museum was not open, however we saw people carrying bags of purchases that looked like they came from a gift shop at the museum, We went back to the museum later but it definitely was closed. We never saw any signs indicating where to enter the museum when it may have been open.

This museum have a model of the fortified town, two real skeletons from the local grave yard, and the worlds most stupid horse (stuffed). If you are lucky you'll meet the sweetest lady and go on a walk around Gamlebyen in one of the museums historic walks for children.

We enjoyed visiting this small local museum. It provided a good overview of the town. The staff were very welcoming. Not many people were visiting - so we had the place to ourselves.

English speakers shouldn't expect everything in a foreign country to be explained in English (some Americans, please note) but this museum makes no effort - only a few displays had an English explanation & the containers supposed to hold flyers with English info were stone cold empty. In any case, nothing startling except for a skeleton found buried under the hospital and a maniken dressed in full Viking regalia. You'll see better items either at the Viking Ship Museum of the Historiks Museum (both reviewed seperately)

We are sorry that you had a poor experience in our museum, especially regarding the english texting in the exhibitions. We have been aware of these shortcomings regarding language options, and we are currently building a brand new town history exhibition, where english translations are included. We are opening on June 23rd, and hope you would want to revisit this summer.
