A bit of the history from JølsterShow map
In Jølstramuseet we show you around in Grindastova, Eldhuset and Strandstova. All the old houses are from Jølster.
Grindastova is one of the oldest houses in Jølster. The kitchen is from a “Priest-farm” in Ålhus and Strandstova with Strandsbua has been on a place called Strand, on the south side of Jølstrawater. In our houses we have objects from Jølster's past. Our collection of well-being and remnants of national costume and other garments has meant a lot for the reconstruction of the six women's suits and two men's suits in Jølster. We have the pipe of Nikolai Astrup with his monogram on, and drafts of new tourist stamps that he made. The tablecloth he made for his mother, when he was 17 years old, is hanging in Eldhuset. You'll find, among other things, a thousand years old beautiful stone ax, a spinning wheel and a grindstone from the Viking age. We can show you the first form of lamp we had here in Norway and we have maps of several of the burial discovery in the village. Have you seen a blood-letting equipment before? We have it here. Besides we have a lot of old tools.
