Overview
Details

Voss Folkemuseum is a local museum whose purpose is to preserve items of historic interest from Voss and the surrounding area. When the Museum was founded in 1917 one of its main aims was to preserve the old farmstead at Mølster (Mølstertunet), where all the buildings still stand where they were once built.


Mølstertunet farm stead:


At the Farmstead "Mølstertunet" you can get the feeling of being transported back into history. The wooden walls of the buildings have been weathered brownish-grey and the roofs are covered with timeless turf or ancient slates. Inside the old farmhouse the walls still give off the pungent smell of smoke from the open hearth.


The buildings stand today where they have always stood, and nothing has been added or removed. The buildings, therefore, give a genuine impression of the working and living conditions which developed over the centuries.


The oldest building is a log house with an open hearth (årestove), which is believed to be from about 1500, and the most recent building dates from the 1880s.

Guided tour: 

During the summer season you can join a guided tour of the farm stead every hour. Groups of 15 poeple and more can pre-book a tour by phone +47 474 79 794 or e-mail.
