Description

About Voss Folkemuseum (Voss Folk Museum):
Voss Folkemuseum is a local museum whose purpose is to preserve items of historic interest from Voss and the surrounding area. When the Museum was founded in 1917 one of its main aims was to preserve the old farmstead at Mølster (Mølstertunet), where all the buildings still stand where they were once built.

The Museum has more than 20 000 registered items in its collections.

About Mølstertunet:
At the Farmstead "Mølstertunet" you can get the feeling of being transported back into history. The wooden walls of the buildings have been weathered brownish-grey and the roofs are covered with timeless turf or ancient slates. Inside the old farmhouse the walls still give off the pungent smell of smoke from the open hearth.

The buildings stand today where they have always stood, and nothing has been added or removed. The buildings, therefore, give a genuine impression of the working and living conditions which developed over the centuries.

The oldest building is a log house with an open hearth (årestove), which is believed to be from about 1500, and the most recent building dates from the 1880s.


Other museums:
Voss Folkemuseum also encompasses:
- Nesheimstunet museum - a farmyard of 12 old farm buildings, the oldest from 1688. Open for groups on request.
- The Old Vicarage at Oppheim - a collection of furniture and chattels from Vossestrand. Open on request.
