Description

Good old days on the farm, in the scenic surroundings of Presbakken.

Salangen Country Museum lies nestled in beautiful and fertile farmland at Prestbakken in Upper Salangen. In the early 1700s people from Southern Norway moved here and cleared land for farming.

The museum consists of seven buildings, all re-located to Prestbakken. The buildings include a farmhouse, barn, storehouse, sheds, smithy, and a mill. The farmhouse, known as "Limostua", dates from the 1870s. A wonderful collection of around 1500 arifacts, primarly kitchen utensils, furniture, carpentry and farming tools, wagons, and an entire shoemaker`s workshop create an atmosphere not unlike thar in Hamsun`s book "Growth of the Soil".

Salangen Country Museum opens a door to farm life in the far North.
