On the listed farm Amperhaugen in Stor-Elvdal municipality is Sollia War History Collection located. The unique collection put together by Jo Øvergaard was opened in May 2017. It is a collection of weapons, uniforms and effects related to, among other things, Milorg, Kompani Linge Group Grebe and National Samling.
Visitors can experience items that appear with full uniforms, warships, and containers used to fly drop during World War II. It must also be mentioned that the German side is emphasized. Several of the items in the collection are from Jo’s father Rolf Øvergaard. Rolf was incorporated into the ”Grebe” in 1944. Hearing Jo telling stories from the days of war is alone worth a visit to the museum.
The farm Amperhaugen received the former quality brand Olavsrosa of the Norwegian Heritage Foundation. This mark is a sign of cultural experiences out of the ordinary and there was never doubt about the collection’s location. At Amperhaugen it is also possible to stay overnight.
