    At the edge of several major mountains and several national parks, the Mountain Museum could not find a better location. It encompasses a museum and information part as well as some research and study collections. There are films and performances and mountain related things and books for sale. There is good visitors' informration to those who are venturing into the surrounding mountains, and it is the official "Jotunheimes National Parc Center".

    The key aim of the museum is to show you how people have utilized the mountain resources in the past till now.
    Well worth a visit.
    Check their web page or call to find out their seasonal opening hours. Varies throughout the year!

    Lom stave church

    Lom stave church was built in the 1100s. In the 1600s it was rebuilt to a cruciform church.

    This stave church is actually one of just a very few stave churches of which the original medieval crest with a dragon head still survives.

    The church is situated in the town of Lom, which lies in Gudbrandsdalen valley in central Norway.

    Lom Stave Church

    by aukahkay Written Feb 23, 2006
    Lom Stave Church

    Most churches built in Norway before the Black Death swept across the country in the years 1349-51, were stave churches. There must have been approximately 800 - 1000 stave churches in Norway, although there are only 25 stave churches today which are preserved at their original location. Five stave churches have been moved, re-erected and preserved at new locations. Two stave churches are stored at the storehouse of The Norwegian Folk museum.
    The Lom Church was mentioned for the first time in writing in 1240, but is believed to be even older. The Church, which is dedicated to the Virgin Mary, St John the Baptist and Olav the Pious, was built in the Basilica style, with the oldest section in the Romanesque style having characteristic rounded arches. It has since been renovated several times.
