Mjøssamlingene at Minnesund is Lake Mjøsas maritime museum with exhibitions and boats.
Lake Mjøsas maritime museum is a special heritage site. Historical vessels can be seen along the pier when they not are on the lake. The museum is situated by the old ferry location where Lake Mjøsa flows into the river Vorma and shows the 19th century shipping environment. The oldest of the warehouses dates back to 1801. The guided tour tells the colourful stories from the time when Lake Mjøsa was the main transport route for people, goods and timber. Mjøssamlingene has its own pier and the area is well suited for exploration and recreation. There are guided tours in the weekends during summer. Groups can make appointments.
Mjøssamlingene is a part of Mjøsmuseet, a regional museum of cultural history in Gjøvik, Toten and Minnesund. Other museums includes: Mjøsas ark, an exhibition about Lake Mjøsa at Kapp, the open-air museum Eiktunet in Gjøvik, and two historic houses, Gjøvik gård and Stenberg.
