I always visited museums and cultural centers, it made my life became richer and my personality stood out. Today I saw a place full of interesting stories being ignored, those stories were there under the pile of magazines, newspapers and old waltzes music sheets, all partially damaged. I do not know, but it seems a lot, that those responsible for... More

Gimle Gård is lovely for a stroll in the park, picnic, barbeque with a bunch of people, or just looking at flowers. The inside also has a botanical museum, but I've never visited that. I enjoy the outside though, the park area. The flowers in the late summer are BEAUTIFUL. And the trees are majestic.
