The starting point for any visit to Morgedal, this is a striking building which houses a multimedia journey through skiing's history with special attention paid to the skiing revolution which developed out from Morgedal in the 1850's. You can explore the museum on your own but a guide is highly recommended. Displays inside the museum include a big screen pre-show depicting the development of skiing over the last 4000 years, Morgedal in the 1850s, a ski making workshop, First to the south pole, Norway's first ski wax factory, Olympic flame history and displays and a wide format, 3 screen telemark ski film that will give you the urge to strap on some skis!

Well worth visiting. Especially for those interested in skiing and7or the South Pole conquest by the Norwegians . some who came from this veru village. If you have breath, see the multi-screened film of two of the world's best snow-boarders. It is far-out!

For travellers that take this route over the mountains it is a great opportunity for learning about the history of skiing. We always stop here for a pause when going by car to the west coast of Norway.

Norwegian Ski Museum is highly recommended to visit when in Morgedal. Here you'll learn everything you need to know about the Norwegian Ski history. It's also worth witnessing the 17 metres long skis on the wall outside (Norways longest skis), as well as the statue...More

An interesting and a very informative exhibit about the genesis and history of the ski sport. The gift store offered a good assortment of Norwegian souvenirs besides the usual dreary T-shirts and the plastic trolls made in China.
