THE GUARDSMEN’S HUT

This cog-joint hut from Lærdal is unique. It is a small guardsmen’s hut which originally was located on top of the mountain of Vetanosi between Lærdalsøyri and Fodnes, about 11oo meters above sea level.

The hut has a door in one of the end walls and big peepholes with a view in three directions. Along the walls there are fixed dirt benches.

1814 The Year of Miracles

The incredible year, seen from a local perspective

In connection with Norway’s Constitution jubilee, the museum’s new exhibit shows the dramatic events on the national and international levels throughout the year 1814. At the same time we focus on our own local communities and our representatives to Eidsvoll.
Who were the five representatives from the Nordre Bergenhus county who took part in the national assembly in the spring of 1814? How were they selected? How did they travel to Eidsvoll and what did they actually do there?
