Nesasjøhuset Museum

Arts and crafts

The old wharf Nesasjøhuset is one of many historically important buildings in Sand. Situated at the northern end of the fjordside village, it now houses the Ryfylke Museum.

The wharf dates back to 1850 and was built to salt herring, and to store seine nets and boats. The lucrative herring fisheries of the 19th century had a profound impact on western Norway. After these fisheries tapered off, Nesasjøhuset was used as a mechanical workshop and eventually restored to become a museum. Today it houses two floors of exhibitions, a library and offices, a museum shop and a café. In the museum store you can find local literature, handmade products from Ryfylke, jewellery, and other giftwares.

Ryfylke Museum makes a great effort to document and preserve local handicraft traditions – and if you visit one of the area’s farm museums you will gain many insights.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
