“A History of Kristiansands living”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2013

Visited this museum whilst on a Baltic Cruise. We found our own way here via a local bus and saw what Kristiansands houses looked like over a hundred years ago. Although the museum was only fully open for pre-booked cruise excursions we could still see the majority of this site without paying an entrance fee. We spent an enjoyable couple of hours seeing many different buildings and a farm area. All in all an enjoyable look into Norways past

“Not to be missed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2013

Visited whilst on a cruise from UK. Easy bus ride from town costr around £5 each return and entry (for pensioners) at around the same made this incredible value. we spent over two hours enjoying seeing the many ages and styles of buildings and chatting with the staff whoe provided a most enjoyable and informative talk ( in excellent English ). Would higly recommend anyone with an interest in history to visit this museum.

“A glimpse into Norways past”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2013

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 learn how we take lots of things for granted when you find how they lived many years ago. If we had one fault, and it's not the museums, is that the visit wasn't long enough. Really enjoyable and would recommend to anyone
