Description

Egge area is managed today by Egge Museum, which has an open-air museum on the site consisting of a fully decorated farmstead from the 19th century. The museum also has an agricultural center with exhibits of modern-day agriculture and a hydroelectric power plant in Ostby waterfall. The County Farm from 1919 clearly shows Egge as a modern chiefdom. Like pearls on a string, you can see burial sites from the Iron Age along both sides of the road leading into the yard of Egge farm - a chiefdom with a thousand year history, well known from the sagas. Here lived Vikings' most powerful chiefs; Trond Haka, Olver and Kalf Arnason, The latter was among those who gathered farmers to fight against Olaf Haraldsson at the Battle of Stiklestad in 1030. Nowadays, there is a reconstructed manor garden from the early 1900s on Egge courtyard. Here you can enjoy views over the city or take a stroll along the burial mounds on Sigrid's path.
During the season there are different things going on at the Egg. I.e. Children's Day - Say hello to all the animals and the new chicks or catch small animals in the pond.
There is a wealth of activities and entertainment. Whittling, horse and carriage, baking, carpentry, jumping in the hay, pony-riding, exploring and much more. And Viking Festival - in true Viking style. Get a glimpse of how they lived at that time.

Egge Museum is around 1.5 km from the centre of Steinkjer. Its offices are located in the county administration building Fylkesmannsgården.
