This museum is a great way of getting in touch with Norwegian culture. It features houses, workshops and shops from different parts of Norway, with live actors to enhance the experience. Great way to spend a few hours.

The indoor museum is good on its own, but the Stave Church is the star of this place. There are many historic Norwegian village buildings to browse.

We visited on Whit Monday, a national holiday. While we were worried about crowds, we shouldn’t have been. The museum grounds are quite large and easily accommodated everyone without ever feeling crowded. We enjoyed seeing the old buildings and displays. The signs were helpful and...More

Great place to explore history of Norvegian life centuries ago... the way how people lived, worked and build homes. Amazing also to see how green roofs have been integral part of each building to protect against the cold and frost.

I stopped here as part of our group tour. It was an overcast/misting day but that didn't stop us from walking all around the grounds. The Stave church is a must see. The architecture and the beautiful flowers added to our experience. Too many things...More

The best part of seeing this place was that I was taken there by the best tour company norwayfjordtravel who's tour guides were so informative. I was told that it was replica of the actual church which was in the museum but such good design...More

This outdoor folk museum is the best in Norway in my opinion. Many of the dwellings are open. Educational signage is localized in both Norwegian and English. There are staff dressed in character that are very helpful with all your questions. It is not cheesy...More

This place is huge- you could easily spend a day here. We spent about 4 hours looking through the different exhibits, old houses, and stave church. We saw they offered some interactive classes on traditional cooking, however it was cash only. We would have loved...More

There are benches however there is also a lot of walking required to see the exhibits. In addition, there are a couple of fairly steep hills to climb (to see the Stave Church). It is well worth the time but substantial... More
