A delightful museum, similar to those in other Scandinavian countries, with old buildings in a beautiful forest setting, giving a flavour of how life once was. As I was there as part of a wider tour I didn't have time to see it all but the village street and the 1600s farm were fascinating, especially the farm. The collection of... More

Visited the museum recently as an excursion whilst on a cruise. It was well worth it. It was really interesting to see how Norweigans lived many years ago, and our guide Anjette (hope that's spelt right) was very informative and made it interesting. It's good how they have managed to get all the old buildings into one place. And you... More
