Vitengarden

We finally got out of the house on Sunday. Being a museum geek, and with the new modern type of museums where you actually get to try things out, so are the men in my life, we decided to try out another experimentarium.

Vitengarden is located at Nærbø, a 40 minute drive from Stavanger. The skies were blue, the scenery breathtaking and the museum itself beautiful. We brought lunch and bought strawberries on the way, eating our food outside.
Wood and stone; like buildings growing out of the landscape.
This area, Jæren, is known for its stone fences, windblown trees and huge farms.
While grandson was busy transporting balls from one place to another by rotating handles here and there,
I found a quilt on display
and woven bedding
and a working bee hive and potato parasites in a microscope; the old biologist in me had a field day.

Great day indeed!

  3. Sounds like a facinating place to visit. I'll bet grandson was having a blast!
