"Walking In History" Norwegian Folk Museum Tip by darkjedi

Norwegian Folk Museum, Oslo: 54 reviews and 133 photos


The Norwegian Folk Museum exhibitions provide colorful pictures of daily life and living conditions in Norway from 1500 and until the present day. The museum consists of an Open Air Museum, basically a recreated village (of particular interest is a stave church brought here from Gol in 1885). and many permanent and temporary exhibitions indoors in more modern buildings, medieval houses and pharmacy museum etc. The main building contains collections of everyday objects, silver, carpets, funiture etc, together with a Lapp Exhibition (costumes, tents and equipment for reindeer herding, hunting and fishing). In the same building is Ibsen's study from Oslo.

I have visited quite a few of the old time recreated life type places but this is by far the largest and the best of them. Highly recommended.

Directions: Bogdoy Museum Island (close to Viking Museum)
