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.
As a part of Sogn Fjord Museum we find the Glavær cottage. This old alehouse/tavern was originally located on the island of Søre Glavær in the municipality of Gulen at the entrance to the Sognefjord. It was also called “Bondestova” (the farmer’s cottage) and this is the name that is painted above the entrance door. The cottage was probably built in the first decade of the 19th century.
The Heiberg Collections – Sogn Folk Museum is one of the oldest and finest folk museums in the country. At this museum you can experience how people from Sogn have worked and lived, from the Middle Ages until the present time.
