Gamle Kvernes bygdemuseum

At Kvernes village museum you can see how the coastal environment was in Norway in the 1600s to the 1800s. The different buildings at the property all have an interesting story and different exhibitions, and if you go down to the sea, you can get more information about how it was for the people living by the coast about 200 years ago. Here lived fishermen and their families, and while the fathers and son were out at sea, the women and children had to take care of the farm. 


Kvernes village museum is a part of Kvernes cultural area, and is one of the stops on Kystpilegrimsleia, which is the pilgrimage route along the West coast streching from Egersund to Trondheim, previously called Nidaros.
