There is an exhibition in the basement of the “Ministers barn” (where Kafé Olea is) that explains the history of the stave church.

300 meters from Heddal stave church is Heddal open air museum. There you can see with or without a guided tour, 18th and 19th century buildings from the area. The museum is very interesting for children, as there are animals and some farming. The open air museum is open from 15th June – 31th August.

As marked on the map, there are a number of stave churches, from as early as the 12th century within easy reach of Vollen.  Perhaps Heddal and Uvdal are the finest, but all are well-worth a visit.

Heddal is on road E134 about 105 km from Vollen.
Uvdal is on road 40, about 166 km from Vollen.
