Atnbrufossen waterfall is situated where the river Atna flows out from the lake Atnsjøen. Atnbrufossen water-powered sawmill museum is run by the society, Atnbrufossen vannbruksmuseums forening, which has restored the timber floating facilities, sawmill and hydropower station. The museum represents the old building style with wood, while Fossehuset (the waterfall house) focuses on the modern use of wood as a building material.
Atnbrufossen water-powered sawmill museum comprises a turbine house, sawmill, sauna, grain drying house, timber floating facility, smithy and a small hydropower station. The sawmill at Atnbrua was modernised in 1914, but its traditions date right back to the 18th century.
Fosse House is located adjacent to the museum and is well worth visiting.
