Description

Setesdal was by many perceived as an area where ancient Norway had been preserved. Customs and traditions formed part of the Norwegian national heritage, and visitors to the region came to experience a bygone era.
Among these were Anton Raabe and the actor Tore Segelcke. Over a period of some ten years following the end of the war, they created their own little rural museum in the hills above Bykle Church. This was where they spent their summers, enjoying the romance of the old buildings.

Today, the premises have been restored and the buildings redecorated, and visitors are welcomed to a somewhat different museum experience.
