Overview

Sunndal museum is part of Leikvin heritage park. Here is all the main exhibition of the British salmon lords who came to Nordmøre in time between 1850 and 1950, especially Barbara Arbuthnott if dramatic life has become legendary in the valley. The rest of Sunndal story is also available here, with their own exhibitions on hunting and trapping. The museum is an open air museum with several buildings of varying ages, some with authentic interior, others have exhibits indoors.
The museum welcomes booking tours throughout the year, so far we have capacity. In addition, there are many who experience the museum on our popular events and of the local schools.
There are several thousand objects on Leikvin, most things that are associated with the ancient agricultural society, but also many things for salmon lords.

The rest of the heritage park, you can experience on your own: Phillips garden is a British landscape garden founded by Briton Etelbert Lort-Phillips around his house, "Resting Place". Today the house gone, but the garden is full of flowering plants and trees. Follow the trail down from Phillisphagen come to the burial ground on Løykja, one of the largest burial ground from the Iron Age. The burial site is accessible along the trail with signs in several languages. By appointment, you can also get guidance here. The last part of the heritage park is the cemetery on Løykja, where Barbara Arbuthnott and several other of the protagonists around her story is buried. There were also the main church in Sunndal lay until it was taken by an avalanche in the 1700s.
