Heritage is our legacy from the past, what we live with today, and what we pass on to future generations. Our cultural and natural heritage are both irreplaceable sources of life and inspiration. In Telemark both Rjukan and Notodden are on the UNESCO list.
The Rjukan Waterfall provided the basis for building the world's largest power station of the time at Vemork in 1911. The power station is now a museum where you can learn about the fantastic adventure of its founding and see exhibitions on industrial development in Norway and especially in Rjukan.
Telemarksgalleriet and Lysebuen shows art and industrial history in a beautiful industrial hall from the early nineteenth century. Mineral production was crucial to change a difficult food situation worldwide, and transformed Norway from a poor peasant society into a modern welfare society.
