  • This place is located inside the Maihaugen area, which means you have to buy a ticket for the whole thing to access it. But it was such a fun walk down memory lane! They had all the stuff I remember.....  more »
  • You have to visit the Post Museum if you are already inside the Maihaugen area! Lots of very old and still running vehicles, and for us Norwegians it is a definite tug at old memories to walk trough.....  more »

  • The Best place you could spend a day. I spent 4 hours here. Partly sunny day which helps. Wonderful place to wander and explore☀️ Bring a picnic lunch many different places with tables to eat at. Amazing Norwegian History and historical buildings. Like stepping in a time machine and being transported back in time. The grounds are huge! I would plan at least 3 hours if not more as so so much to see and its a big property. Do not eat at their cafe! Food is really not good, old and expensive! Bring your own snacks or lunch. Just loved everything and even laid in a beautiful little meadow with flowers for awhile. Watched clouds float by.
  • Must-visit. The guided tour is recommended as you get to see parts that are otherwise locked. There is also an indoor exhibition “We won the land” which is worth visiting. It shows you how humans have involved and makes you think about the kind of future we are headed to.
