Jæren Recreation Council is responsible for the organisation and running of Kvassheim Recreation Lighthouse. The former machine house has been renovated and is today used as a café. Surrounded by majestic views of the ocean, you can bring your own lunch or buy homebaked treats, coffee, fizzy drinks and ice-cream from the café.
Different exhibitions in the lighthouse today
From the café there is a direct connection to the converted and restored lighthouse keeper's cottage. On the first floor, there is an exhibition about historic rescue operations along the coast of Jæren. The second floor features a major exhibition on the wetlands in the area. 23 protected wetlands that have international protection status (RAMSAR) are presented in images, text and film. Here is also a telescope, nature quiz, drawing for children and a nature photo gallery. See also the historical exhibition From Ice Age to the Present.
In the lighthouse garden, there is an exhibition about the sinking of the Russian navy vessel "Ingermanland" in 1842. Free admission to the exhibitions.
