  • This is a fantastically, wonderful place to visit. Full of history and architecture; the historic buildings and vintage train and cars are a wonder.

  • Very beautiful on a winter day. Actually prefer it to summer time.

  • There are just few places in the word, where you said, I know it! I had it! It had my parents, or my grandfather ... Full century of our live, habits, fashion, technique, and culture in one big park and many houses. Have to see. Recommended.

  • Beautiful place for a walk or a dip into Norwegian history.

  • Really nice open air museum. With lots of old buildings and with people who play to be persons from the time of the buildings they were in. Great schoolteacher we had. Learned a lot about the history from Norway here. Also had a delicious waffle here, the best one from our whole trip.
