Sivert Aarflotmuseet

Sivert Aarflot was the farmer son with 22 days of schooling, who became one of the foremost public enlighteners in North-West Norway. Aarflot's thirst for knowledge was wide: from practical land cultivation to theoretical astronomy. The knowledge was to be shared and communicated further. He became a teacher and sheriff and founded both a library, a printing house and the newspaper Norsk Landboeblad. 

The newspaper is still published in Volda under the name Møre. The Sivert Aarflot Museum, located at Ekset in Volda municipality, where he lived and ran a printing shop, tells the story of this pioneer and popular enlightener.
