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.

ヴァイキング船博物館のすぐ近くにあります。 まず民族衣装などが展示された博物館内をめぐり、屋外をまわるのですが、これが思ったより広くて、館内図もけっしてわかりやすいとは言えず、木造教会を探して歩いた、歩いた！ 途中雪も降ってきて寒さもピークでしたし、結局全敷地の1/3もまわれなかったと思います（汗）。 でも、丘への坂道をのぼってゆくと木立の間からこつぜんとあらわれる木造教会のたたずまいは風情たっぷ... more »It is right next to the Viking Ship Museum. I walked around the museum where the national costume was exhibited, and it was more spacious than I thought, and it was not easy to understand the view of the hotel, I walked looking for a wooden church! It was snowing on the way, and the cold was a peak, and I think that I did not roll 1/3 of the whole site after all (sweat). But, the atmosphere of the wooden church which appeared to be suddenly from between the trees when climbing the slope to the hill was a lot of atmosphere, and it seemed to be a scene of beautiful production even the flickering snow. With plenty of time and stamina, please ♪

Open Air Museum where you can visit as Vivian, where and what types of constructions used the Norwegian civilizations in the past. There are many demonstrations among others of how to make bread and inside the houses there are people who explain the way they lived. There is a small farm with animals and impossible not to mention the wooden church, really impressive. Obligatory stop.
