Even on a wet cold day the walk around the historical buildings was interesting and pleasant - it would be lovely in nice weather. The indoor exhibits in the visitors centre ranged from the unusual (walls and walls of chainsaws) to the fascinating - the exhibits of different aspects of life in different periods was particularly well done.

A nice glimpse into the lives and times of some specific regions in the country. Entire cottages, houses, buildings and a stave church are relocated in the vast open area. A short guided tour would be great and makes the visit more worthy.

This is a museum created by the people of Trondheim,with all the historical stuff including entire buildings....the tavern restaurant is one of them....relocated here.Many exhibits were closed for the holiday season and this,I felt was unfair.

A gorgeous day to visit- summer solstice! The atmosphere was humming with lots of people. W toured around the museum looking at the folk homes and areas, set out like a wee township. A quaint look at olden day life. A great opportunity to walk up the hill side where the kings castle and what remains there are. A great... More

Beautiful property accessible on Hop on/Hop Off bus. Three of us had a beautiful day to walk and were greeted with delightful guides near various points. The rare opportunity to visit a stave church and hear Nicolet sing a couple of Norwegian hymns was a highlight. Our interior views of early farm houses were enhanced by the young man who... More

If you have never seen Viking houses, then I recommend the guided tour which takes you around the village and into some of the houses and churches. The history is fascinating and the grounds are very nice to walk on your own. The museum indoors at the entrance was interesting but small and the cafe could have been better, though.
