Norsk Folkemuseum – Norwegian Museum of Cultural History

  • Museumsveien 10, Oslo

  •  /  km From You

Travel back in time at one of the world's largest open-air museums.

The Norwegian Museum of Cultural History shows how people have been living in Norway since the 16th century and up until our own times.

In the open air museum, you’ll find 160 historic buildings situated in beautiful surroundings. Walk between different parts of Norway, from cities to the countryside, while you envision the joys and struggles of everyday life through the centuries. 

Sod roofed farm houses from different regions are surrounded by pastures and grazing farm animals behind picturesque fences. The museum’s old town includes homes, stores and workshops of different kinds, tied together by cobbled streets. Don’t miss the popular Gol stave church, built in the 1200s.

Historic furniture, clothing, sliver wear, altarpieces, Sami handicrafts and the interior of Norway’s first parliament are on display in indoor exhibition halls.

Throughout the year, the museum offers a varied selection of activities and experiences for all ages. Storytelling, live folk dancing and baking of the traditional ‘lefse’ are among the favourites.

The museum area includes a gift shop and a café.
You can find more information on the activities on offer at the Norwegian Museum of Cultural History’s website.
