Nedstrand regional museum in Tysvær tells the story of the timber trade in the Ryfylkefjordene in the 1500s to the 1600s. The museum has several collections and exhibitions.
The old customs post from «Ryfylke Customs Station» has been conserved and is preserved as a protected building on the ferry dock. The timber dates from 1549, which makes it one of the oldest preserved wooden buildings in Rogaland. At “Old Stranda School” from 1875, the museum has an office, meeting room and exhibitions put together from local collections. The museum also has exhibitions in the youth activities house at Baustad. "Vatlandsamlinga" is an extensive collection of objects by the enthusiastic collector Ommund Vatland. In the same building you will find the "Kirkebø collection". A complete doctor's office furnished as it was used by Dr. Jon Kirkebø, the local doctor in Nedstrand between 1925 and 1949.
