During summer, there are different activities at the museum every day. Most Sundays, we feature special program events. In the Open-Air Museum, many buildings are open, and a host in traditional folk dress welcomes you.
The exhibits are located in the Open-Air Museum and in the exhibit halls. They feature daily life and living condition in Norway from the 16th century to present time. Panorama views.
Collections of artefacts, buildings, photographs and archivalia represent life and culture in Norway from the 16th century to present.
The museum has long traditions as a research institution with an interdisciplinary research staff in the fields of ethnology, folkloristic, cultural history, anthropology and art history.
