Really interesting museum about the industriousness of the Norwegian people, especially in and around Odda. Worth a visit.

After a fantastic introduction from the very knowledgable and passionate guide at reception we made our way into the upper part of the administration building to enjoy the exhibition detailing the fascinating history of the power-station. There were folders with the full translations in English which were... More

We went there on a rainy day; there is not too much to do in this part of Norway on days like that. When arriving, we had a nice introduction by the host, we were the only visitors and it was so nice. It is interesting, not only because of the tecnology, but also because of the history - industrialization,... More

this hydopower museum is a unique archeological site, perfect for a rainy day. the beaufully restored marble control room and machines are realy nice. we visited the site with a guide (30') but you can hang around longer. We also combined with a 60' walk to the top of the water pipes.

While the plant may seems outdated now, the location and the machinery in the facility are worth visiting. Dont miss the chance to climb to liletop on a via ferrata!

We had a fun time here. We drove through tunnels (deep inside mountain and with roundabout) to arrive here. The fjord was narrow with tall backdrop. There were roadside cherry for sale (honor system) and they were fresh and yummy. The museum has nice collections and photos to explain the history of the hydropower use in Norway. This country impressed... More

The Tysso I power plant was constructed between 1906 and 1918, and was one of the largest high pressure power plants in the world. Take a trip to NVIM if you are in # Hardanger and experience a concert or a cultural event. Wonderful place and wonderful acoustics.
