The childrens favorite place to visit, lots of activities. DuVerden Maritime Museum + Science Centre is a vibrant venue with activities for young and old. The centre has created a link between the area's rich maritime history and future-oriented education as well as industrial development. The spectacular building houses Exhibitions and installations. The objective is to stimulate interest in maritime history, science and technology through interactive communication methods - especially for children and young people. Consequently, learning through playing and experimenting is essential when visiting DuVerden. The centre has its own Amphitheatre, which seats fifty people, and is used for 3D films. The weather turntable illustrates weather in a new way. Spin it as hard as you can, and a fan will produce a storm strength wind. We also have a big toy for the big boys: Our ship bridge simulator lets you control a ship and you can navigate up the river to Skien or out on to the fiord. Welcome to a great experience!
A very nice place to spend the day with your family. A lot of activities both for kids and adults like shows, workshops, 3D movies etc. Also a small cafe to enjoy a coffee with a nice view of the river.How lovely to hear that you had a nice time visiting us! Welcome back!

Learn the fascinating history of PP, through the interactive exhibition that also includes about 1.000 objects. As a visitor at the Porcelain Museum (Porselensmuseet) you are invited into a historical understanding of the craft of porcelain but also to interact and have a close dialogue with other visitors.
If you need authentic Norwegian porcelain, go there withour thinking! Have a good choice of things to buy, big seasonal discounts. The store is at the territory of the porcelain factory, so they make things and sell them right from the factory.

Brevik Church was built in 1963. It is a work church with congreation rooms. The altarpiece was painted by Terje Grostad. The church also has golden leather chairs made by former vicar Alf Kapstad.
The church and the church yard are very interesting.
Did you know that there is a separate section for people who were cremated? My great grandparents were buried there as were my great aunts and uncles. It is fun to look at the names of people I have heard about growing up - depending if the family continued the payments on the grave.

The train trip starts in Porsgrunn and leads to central Telemark. Tickets can be bought at the train station or online at NSB, the Norwegian rail way service.
First leg of the trip goes to Skien along the Skien river, passing sone small villages. North of Skien the Mountains become higher and the Valleys narrower. Beautiful views on both sides of the track.
I stopped at Nordagutu station. The trip takes less than an hour, and is apparently offered only during weekdays.

Brevik municipal museum The little town of Brevik has one of Norways best preserved wooden architecture from the 17. century and is a most romantic place to visit. The municipal museum in situated in the Town Hall from anno 1760. It includes a vey well stocked grocery store, an old post office, chemist's shop, photostudy and a collection of artifacts from the II world war. Guided foot tours through the town and to nearby isles by boat can be arranged.
Siste lørdag i juli har det blitt tradisjon med en thailandsk markering med mat og opptog til ære for den thailandske kongen som var på besøk i Brevik i 1907. Her får du muligheten til å smake på thailandsk mat, se forskjellige thailandske drakter og høre thailandsk sang/musikk.
Ta med campingstol, eller piknik pledd da det er begrenset med sitteplasser.

Vi var på en utrolig bra konsert med operakoret til Vangen Operastudio. Det var et veldig variert og innholdsrikt program. Det var så bra at jeg personlig vil søke medlemskap i operakoret.
Mattilbudet på Ælvespeilet er virkelig å anbefale nå, og det er en veldig bra service blant hele personalet på Ælvespeilet. Det er også et veldig bra program. Restauranten Blaa har 3 rabatterte menyer for kunder av Ælvespeilet mot visning av Bill.
Minuset er dårlige parkeringsmuligheter

Porsgrunn Museum The Parsonage, built 1784, is the best-preserved parsonage in Telemark, and other 18th century houses typical for this region surround it. The beautiful garden from the last part of the 18th century is reconstructed with historic documented plants.
Forested ridges and bare rock surfaces at Siljan Siljan is dominated by forested areas with knobby hills around a central valley, the Siljan valley. The valley was carved by glaciers and the glacial deposits have provided good agricultural areas. On a tour trough the Siljan region one can see many traces of the last Ice Age, for example, polished grooves, glacial erratic’s of various sizes, glacial flutings and potholes. The two rock types, syenite and larvikite, dominate the exposures in Siljan. These rock types have consolidated from lavas far below the earth crust. 300 million years ago the area today is Siljan was full of volcanic activity and large fissures were formed. This period lasted for about 50 million years and resulted in what geologist today call the Oslo rift. Syenites and larvikites are both so-called magmatic deposits, but they consist of unlike minerals and have different characteristics. These characteristics determine he appearance of the landscape. When larvikite breaks down, it gives a significant amount of nutrients to soil. This is obvious from the vegetation. Auenkollen consists of larvikitee low an rounded knoll with fertile vegetation. Syenite, on the contrary, erodes quite slowly, and therefor contributes little nutrient to the soil. Skriua in Siljan is a typical knoll consisting of syenite. It has bare, steep rock side and sparse vegetation such as fir, juniper and heather.
