Egge Museum covers a vast area steeped in history with many ancient monuments and sites of historical interest. The scenic hillside of Eggevammen is dotted with Iron Age burial sites. A network of prepared nature and heritage trails takes you through a scenic landscape where you can explore these fascinating ancient ruins.
