Norwegian Museum Of Cultural History - Review

This wonderfully engaging museum is the largest cultural museum in Norway. The exhibits cover Norwegian lifestyles from the 15th century onwards, through about 160,000 artefacts - folk dress, textiles, folk art, weapons, toys, musical instruments and work tools. There are also collections of professional and amateur photography (significantly the works of Anders Beer Wilse). But it’s the presentation that’s the real winner here – an open air style collection of 160 houses uprooted from their original locations and beautifully presented in a mock-town here. You can walk in and out of these. Of these, the most important are as follows:

  • Gol Stave Church from the 13th century
  • The Rauland farmhouse from the 14th century
  • The 1865 tenement building
  • The Collections of King Oscar II
  • The Countryside
  • The Old Town
  • The Apartment Building
  • The Pharmacy Museum
  • The Dentist's Offices
  • The Bank
  • The Tap Room

Also important is the Sami Collection. There are picnic tables everywhere so you can bring your own lunch. There really isn’t a better way to get a feel of old Norway. In summer, actors will re-enact traditional Norse occupations and roles in costume. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Oslo Itinerary 2 Days.

Norwegian Museum Of Cultural History, Oslo Reviews

  • Oslo has some great museums, but the folk museum is quite different. Built in a large area, there are structures set up to show how inhabitants stayed in various centuries, their garments, life style. Their food, places of worship have been constructed to show their life. Part of it is still under making. An enjoyable visit, you could easily spend half a day or more. There’s a restaurant inside and a small cafe as well. Worth visiting.

  • Very interesting, informative, it is a summary of various architecture styles of traditional houses and ways of planing found across regions in Norway. Super cozy, but be prepared to walk quite a lot and it is hilly. You can enter some of the houses and view inside. There are some events that might be going on if u are lucky, u might get coffee or pancakes or some other traditional food. Maybe not so attractive if the weather is bad, since most of the exposition is outside

  • If you got a day pass or more then it's worth a visit. You can see how life was in Norway in the different centuries. The bus 30 leave you just in front of it. If you are in Oslo with kids it's a must visit. They will like it as it's an open space, they can buy some candy, try some traditional waffle and have a nice horse's tour. Dogs friendly area too.

  • I'll precede my review with the fact that I'm not a big fan of museums. As far as museums go, this one is higher on my last because it's outside and a bit more interactive, but still not at the top of my list of things to do. My favorite part of this was the architecture of the buildings. I've of the old churches was absolutely gorgeous. I also thought it was really cool that they had grass growing on the roof of a lot of the buildings. It was interesting to see what a town might have been like, but we didn't really find it entertaining enough to spend more than an hour or two there. The candy shop was cool, but unfortunately they only accepted cash, so we weren't able to try any candy. If you have kids, I definitely think this would be a good stop. Otherwise, it's not a bad stop, but I wouldn't say it's a must see in Oslo.

  • You can learn a lot about Norwegian Folk Art from the time of the Middle Ages,Romanesque and Gothic periods. Weapons used for war and hunting are showcased as well as the clothes worn by the people of that time. Indoor exhibits must be seen first before the open-air museum as it closes sooner. Paid parking available.(AmEx not accepted).Has a restaurant too.
