The Rock Blasting Museum
The rock blasting museum is located inside a 240-metre-long tunnel just on the upper side of the Norwegian Road Museum. The museum offers a fascinating journey in a real-life mountain setting through Norwegian rock blasting history. Norway is a long and mountainous country with particularly hard species of stone. Early on, the inhabitants had to develop effective methods of breaking up rock for a variety of different reasons. Outside there are areas for children with sandpit and their own places of vehicles and excavators. We recommend a break with lunch basket at the benches and tables in the open air museum. Later in the summer there are blueberries and cranberries in the heather, free to pick for those who are interested.
