Hvoll Lokal Museum

Be sure to make your way to this interesting local history museum, the highpoint being an exhibition on Johann Svarfdaeling. This local giant, at one point the tallest man in the world, stood at 2.34m (almost 7ft 7in). The museum also boasts a splendid natural history exhibition with a polar bear amongst other things.
