The rest stop and buidling is located at 700 metres above sea level, beside the Atnbrufossen waterfall to the east of the Rondane Mountains in central Norway.

The functioning saw mill, owned and run by the local community, is among other traditional markers the main element in this outdoor museum. During the planning stage of the new National Tourist Route parking site for the museum area, it became clear that that two existing buildings (a basic toilet and a telecom-central) were in an unacceptable state.

Having identified the need for the museum to have an additional exhibition space, it was finally decided that the best solution was to have all these functions under one roof.
