The oldest building is the smokehouse in the main building complex, which was added on later and probably dates from the 17th century. You will also find outhouses, a byre, a barn, a corn mill and a traditional boathouse. In 1990 a historical orchard was opened, where old varieties of fruit and the rich fruit traditions of Hjelmeland are preserved. The roofs with slates from local slate quarries are a distinctive feature of Vigatunet.
