Jølstramuseet - History, food, art and culture.

Address: Håvardtunvegen 10

Jølstramuseet is an oasis just off the E39 in the center of Vassenden. Here are 12 old houses that are found in one natural garden. We have a large private collection of older objects from Jølster. We also have an art gallery, food service, concerts, arranging meetings and closed events. 

It is Heidi Fossheim Årdal and Frode Årdal that are the owner of Jølstramuseet. Heidi and Frode are living in Jølstramuseet the hole year.

The Jølstramuseet is not a museum in the traditional sense. In the barn we have kitchen and serving of food and drinks. One can also have a meal served outside in the yard, in one of the old houses or in the firehouse. Our famous dish is Jølstratrout prepared in different ways. 

Art and historical objects adorn the walls both in the barn and in the other old houses. During the International Folk Music Festival hosted in July quarter, concerts are held in the houses where the music of foreign and Norwegian artists will take your breath away.
