HOL RURAL MUSEUM
The old Hol farm
The museum is located in Hagafoss, at the junction of the roads Rv 7 and Rv 50. The museum is built as a traditional Hol farm, and there are also a summer farm and a croft. There are a total of 17 buildings, mostly dating from the 18th and 19th centuries. The buildings have been moved here from different places in Hol, and two of the buildings have been richly decorated by Kristen Aanstad and Kitil Rygg.
There is a separate exhibition building with a great collection of objects and rural costumes. Groups can book guided tours outside normal opening hours.
Hol rural museum also has buildings at other sites in Hol, e.g. Dokken farm in Sudndalen by road Rv 50. Here you can savour the peace and tranquillity on a summer's day. The old buildings are still standing where they were built between 1795 and 1798. The "Loftsstugu" building is said to represent the best of Norway's rich timber architecture. The timber is unusually rough and has been worked to perfection. In the summer, the buildings are open to visitors on certain days. Special events include a harvest day in August and an advent event near Christmas. The farm grounds are always open to visitors.
