Visit on a nice day a wander through preserved historic buildings. Many from the Viking age but some more recent too. The dance demonstration was wonderful.

An outdoor museum with lots of houses and farms from various parts of Norway. It is a shame that there were not more activities showing what and how people lived. Some were programmed for Sunday, the tourist travels all week! Not many animals either.

The Norwegian Museum and Cultural is very interesting and a must visit. It can take you hours, to walk around but is like a park setting with lots of benches.

This place is a nice stroll and a good intro to traditional Norwegian building styles. We'd encourage you to talk to people. Be brave. That's what they're there for! We asked about a beer soup a young lady was making and learned a whole lot...More

The museum is really cool because it is a collection of old buildings that show you what old Norway looked like. I particularly liked the Viking church- you have to walk a little to get there but it's worthwhile. The Sami museum was also quite...More
