Norwegian Museum Of Cultural History3299 Votes Currently Open
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.
