Sunnmore Museum - Review
Sunnmøre Museum is a folk museum in Ålesund that emphasizes on the coastal culture. There are two parts to the museum, one is the open-air museum (comprising of 55 old and distinct buildings) and other is the main building. Go on a walk along the picturesque house examining the exhibits that give you an insight of the cultural and the architectural history of Sunnmøre, feel the unique aura of the place that gives you a sense of what it is to be like to live in the past, and glance through the collection of house and boats, from the stone age to the modern time. During the summer, there are a lot of activities that take place in the Sunnmøre Museum.

Sunnmore Museum, Alesund Reviews
Small exhibition on Rollo, the founder of Normans. Cool collection of old houses and a few boats from surrounding area. Most of the houses are closed though. Very little info and context provided, at least 70% of the places that had some info, had it only in Norwegian, not a great experience in this regards for international visitors.
My family and I came to this museum on a family vacation to Norway in August. We were very disappointed. We saw no employees and almost all of the sights were closed, even though the museum was said to be open.The map explaining what sights to see was extremely vague and barely gave any information at all. Most of the museum is sorrounded by residential areas and since there are no signs or directions, it is very easy to get lost. (We accidentally wandered into a small neighborhood) Because this museum received such high ratings, we were very excited to visit. But we were very dissatisfied in the end.
Nice indoor exposition. Outdoors most houses closed and little information on spot concerning these houses as well as by the boats. Mostly no English translation
Very nice place to visit. You can see some viking ships and very old houses. You can even take your dog with you for a walk.
It would be truly amazing in summer but still interesting in winter. We caught a taxi from the port (approx 20€). The museum is spread out and we couldn't find a map to show exactly where it spread to, and this is the only reason for giving it only 4 stars. There is a pretty reasonable amount of English labelling of the exhibits in the main museum building which has a small collection of Viking age objects. The gift shop was sparsely stocked but the prices weren't bad. There are a couple of impressive replica Viking boats and quite a collection of other small fishing boats of varying ages. The outdoor area is where this museum would really shine in summer since it looks to have a collection of small buildings that I guess become small craft and workshops. Still pleasant to walk around in winter though!
