About Norwegian Museum Of Cultural History, Oslo

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.

Norwegian Museum Of Cultural History, Oslo Reviews - Write a Review

  • The Christmas market at this open air museum was amazing. The traditional treats and historical exhibits we're very cool to see and gave a very real look at what life was like in those olden times. The freshly made Lefsa and waffles we're delicious. The quality of things for sale were all top notch and the vendors we're very friendly. Highly recommend going during the Christmas market times, we went Sunday, December 3th 2017. We had a great time.

  • Very cool open air museum. I recommend coming on the weekends when they have performers play the role of Norwegians from the past. Otherwise it’s a definitely purposefully designed place

  • Brilliant a fabulous selection of houses going back many years. There are cool gardens and some nice touches like pharmacies and banks. The stave church is stunning to see. It is all a short walk from the Viking and Kontiki museum. It is worth also looking out the knitting/weaving section - although this is primarily a store it has some excellent waving looms and a nice exhibition on the wall outside showing things like tatting and fork weaving etc. A really good cafe is by the entrance and normal Oslo prices!

  • Real Norwegian architectural pieces have been gathered here. Representing various parts and eras of the country. This is a place where you can spend an entire day, there is so much to see and do. During the summer actors reside in the buildings an act as people from the period the house was built. You can also partake in activities with them, or simply enjoy the scenery and cultural-historical authentic exhibits. There is plenty to do for both children and adults, perfect for a family day out.

  • A fantastic museum that walks you though the ages. With exception of the stave church the paths can be navigated without much effort. You can ask the staff to allow the wheelchair to use the external gate to get the church.
