Description

Bygland Museum is an open-air museum with old local farm buildings, of which the oldest dates from the 17th century.

The big open-hearth room from 1650 gives a glimpse into the Middle Ages in Norway. Outside, old food plants provide a pleasant sight. The museum is beautifully located by the lake of Byglandsfjorden. Close by is a glassblowers workshop,  and a swimming spot.


There are no guides at the museeum, but the doors are open. At Glashytta you may borrow an audio guide with headphones that will provide information when you explore the museum.
