Owner description: The Norwegian Automobile and Vehicle Museum in Lillehammer, Norway comprises a display of Norwegian auto-history, from the early 1900s re-built Oldsmobile, called Oldsfossum, up to the Troll, the last Norwegian-produced car in the 1950s. A number of horse-drawn vehicles are exhibited: sledges, gigs, carioles and carts. One section has been devoted to the history of the railway, and a model railway is on display. The museum's oldest car is a Wartburg from 1889. It has a 3 hp, 2 cylinder, air-cooled combustion engine. A steam driven car from 1901 and an electric car from 1917 are also shown. Many of the vehicles are exhibited in a context that shows the roads, petrol stations and workshops of the time, along with their use for work and leisure.

Mesna Senter has a little gem tucked way into the back. Outside is an old Fordson tractor. After viewing the museum's many exhibits, there are nice places for a picnic down by the river. This area is a favorite even for locals.

Enjoyed walking through the museum, lots of rare old vehicles (although some in better condition than others).

In this back street of Lillehammer lies this little museum that is well worth the entry ticket price. With cars, mopeds, bicycles and motorcycles dating back to around 1850, it's an interesting walk through time.
