The Troll Hole Museum
The museum offers guided 45-minute tours throughout the day. These cover the history of trolls, from ancient folklore and mythology to the spiky-haired toy that enjoyed huge popularity in the 1960s and ‘70s. You’ll see all the main attractions, including the waterfalls, grottoes, troll bridge, and troll mountain, as well as the Guinness World Record troll collection.
Alternatively, upgrade to receive a behind-the-scenes tour with Sherry, the collector and museum founder (also known as Sigrid the Troll Queen). These include a posttour drink at the café, with free samples of chocolates. Book in advance to secure your spot.
