Nordfjord folkmuseum was founded in 1920. Since 1960 the museum has been situated in "Jølet" in Sandane. The Open-Air Museum with its 45 historical buildings is pleasantly situated near the centre of Sandane. The museum also has a collection of 25 000 objects from the region. The museum has a special responsibility for the history of hydropower and the local transportation ships (sloops). The sloop Holvikejekta is exhibited by the fjord just outside Sandane centre. In the main museum building there are exhibits, a modest café and a museumshop.
