The Norwegian Road Museum provides experiences for all the family. The museum now has a new road history exhibition covering more than 1000 m2 and more than 100 original museum objects. These range from small Viking Age glass beads to a massive 12-tonne excavator! Join us on a journey from the end of the Ice Age through the Viking Age, the Middle Ages and the Age of Union, the start of the modern era and all the way into the future! Experience road history from forest paths to motorways, with exciting narratives about a sunken Viking ship , a scene from a monastery, angry peasants, mischievous ostlers and self-assured motorists. Listen to a machine symphony, admire a gorgeous Cadillac or ponder the future - all at the Norwegian Road Museum. Our 41 projectors and 28 touch-screens let you see road history in a unique way. Machinery, activities and games for children of all ages in our large open-air museum that also offers good hiking opportunities. We have separate activity programs during the autumn and winter holidays. We also invite you for pre-Christmas weekends with exciting and nostalgic experiences, as well as opportunities for Christmas shopping bargains in the museum's general store.

When I told my travel partner that I wanted to visit the Norwegian Road Museum, she thought I had gone mad and that it sounded the most boring thing ever. I proved her wrong. The museum is free, modern, and great fun for all ages. Even if you could not care less for cars or roads (I’m not sure what... More

A good mix of old fashioned museum exhibits and high tech. Make sure you go into the outdoor section and visit the tunnelling museum. Just wrap up warm because you are underground in a real tunnel. The main exhibit about the history of transport in Norway is also very good. Entrance is free. Nice way to spend an afternoon.

Great museum that documents over a hundred years of norwegian road and tunnel construction in a very interesting manor. When we visited, there was a temporary Lamborghini-exhibition with almost all of the cars made up to today. Some nice cars.. Suitable for the whole family, as there are lots of places to sit down and relax or have a picnic... More

We actually went there as my in-laws live there, and they've set up a 218-ton excavator I wanted to see. Surprisingly, the entire museum was filled up with Lamborghinis from the 60's all the way up to the recently revealed 2014 model. Entrance was free :) If you are nearby - it's Hunderfossens closest neighbour - spend an hour or... More

This museum is a nice place on a good-weather day. My sons are in the late teens and they enjoyed it. But I can imagine that very young kids would have a blast running around and looking at all the cool equipment. Then we took a tour of the Blasting Museum. They do have an english version of tour -... More

We enjoyed this combination of museums. Both have free access, and the exhibits at the road museum are fun and interactive. Unfortunately - most is in Norwegian only. The tunnel museum has a nice exhibit through TV screens in a stretch of tunnel - which is a bit boring for smaller children. There are exhibits of vehicles on the grounds.... More
