Just a short walk away from the Viking Ship museum, this attraction jumps you back into the Norway of old. it is an outdoor museum with plenty of pathways through old buildings of what was once a working farm. Guides are dressed in fashion from the period and are very helpful in discussing what life was like, the scarcity of some building materials, etc. Their are live animals around the area, entertaining in their own right. The main attraction of the buildings is a Stave church on a high hill overlooking the area. We spent several hours walking and learning, truthfully I could have spent all day.

If you are heading over to the Bygdoy Peninsula make it a point of visiting the Norsk Folkemuseum. This is a collection of buildings and other realia that trace the history of Norway. This is an outside museum involving a fair amount of walking, but, it is well worth it. A number of the buildings have docents who explain the history of the building and its role in Norway. You could easily find yourself "lost" in Norwegian history and cultural life as you explore this outdoor museum.

If you only have time to visit Oslo, but would like to know more about Norway this is the place to go. A wonderful collection of mainly old buildings from all over this long country reaching almost into the arctic. The buildings, mainly from the country areas and some as old as 500 years have been moved from original sites into this beautifully laid out museum. The buildings are arranged in geographical groups so you can see how local architecture reflects widely different climatic conditions. One of Norway’s most beautiful old stave churches is to be found here too. There are also number of reconstructed buildings from Oslo. The while museum very worthwhile. Norway in a nutshell ( or rather a beautiful open air museum)
