Create an itinerary including Norsk Folkemuseum
Learn about daily life in Norway through the artifacts and 150 houses relocated from different regions at Norsk Folkemuseum. Founded in 1894, this is the country's oldest and largest folk museum. Walk among the houses that have been set up as a village, and view displays depicting culture and lifestyle from 1500 to the present day. Be sure to see the Viking-style Gol Stave Church that dates back to 1200, one of the five medieval buildings in the museum. Inside, check out the permanent exhibitions on folk art, folk costumes, Sami culture, toys, and contemporary history. Grab a map on your way in, and if you are short on time, let the items labeled "must sees" guide you. To buy some traditional Norwegian crafts, stop in the gift shop on your way out. Be sure to wear proper footwear, as some walking is involved. Using our world travel planner, Oslo attractions like Norsk Folkemuseum can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • Great indoor and outdoor exhibits. Staff are kind, and easy to interact with. Some are dressed actors in certain areas, which was fun. The giftshop has a fair collection of authentic items for sale, and the restaurant provides a good variety of foods and treats for lunch. Also, free water refill in the restaurant! The ferry ride to the museum was quick and enjoyable as well.
