  1. The Losna knights - important men in our national history

    During the 1300s and the 1400s, Losna was the seat and the base of one of the wealthiest and most powerful families in the country. A good nose for finances and politics, as well as total loyalty, brought them to the top in the royal hierarchy.
  2. The Hess family business at Buskøy

    The old patrician seat of Buskøy, with a trade and inn-keeping license from 1705, has been the home of several enterprising and successful people. For a whole generation, one of the most important fishing companies in the country had its base here.
  3. Cover against the seal, hiding places at the water's edge

    In a number of places along the coast, seal hunting from land has taken place. A sheltered bay with skerries and rocks near the shore was a good platform for the seal hunter. But the seal is wary, and a cover or a place which the hunter could hide behind, was required.
  4. The Tingastad saw mill

    Like a green oasis the farm of Tingastad lies in between steep and polished rocks and hostile screes on the shore under the mountain of Storehogen and the hill of Haukåsen, and with a view towards Frønningen and the Aurlandsfjord. This is an isolated place, and nobody lives any longer at the farm. A few hundred metres east of the farm houses we find a small water-powered saw mill which today is the property of De Heibergske Samlinger - Sogn Folkemusem.
