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.

This museum, in norwegian "Det Norske Vegmuseum" is situated just north of Lillehammer in the village of Øyer, on the west side of the river, near the Hunderfossen family Park. Entrance is free. Most of the exhibits are inside, but many interesting items are to be found in the adjacent park. The idea is to show how the roads were... More

We visited in July 2016. The indoor museum itself is not that impressive - some good exhibits but quite a lot of exhibits described in local language only - no real problem. the outdoor exhibits are much more interesting - old buildings, vehicles, commercial and roadbuilding vehicles spread over a wide area. Finish off at the mine and see the... More

The place I suggest to visit FIRST when in Lillehammer area is the Norsk vegmuseum - the Norwegian Road museum. I had been walking there once before, and it was really really pretty, but as I am not a fan of cars or roads, I thoght the museum is not my cup of tea. Big mistake to think that. This... More

We did not expect much here. But the museum has a high standard! They had a big exhibition of racing cars when we visited. And you'll find some things to do outside as well, not to forget all the different machines used for building and maintaining roads.

This is a great, hands on, open-air museum showcasing some pretty old construction and mining equipment. I probably thought it was cooler than most because I work for a large construction company. It's free...so if you're in the area it's worth an hour of your time.

A nice indoor exhibit and some fine exhibits outside too. We were fortunate enough to be given a guided tour of some of the locked external exhibits by a friendly member of staff.

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.
