Trip Planner: Europe / Norway / Eastern Norway / Oslo / Norsk Folkemuseum
Learn about daily life in Norway through the artifacts and 150 houses relocated from different regions at Norsk Folkemuseum. Founded in 1894, this is the country's oldest and largest folk museum. Walk among the houses that have been set up as a village, and view displays depicting culture and lifestyle from 1500 to the present day. Be sure to see the Viking-style Gol Stave Church that dates back to 1200, one of the five medieval buildings in the museum. Inside, check out the permanent exhibitions on folk art, folk costumes, Sami culture, toys, and contemporary history. Grab a map on your way in, and if you are short on time, let the items labeled "must sees" guide you. To buy some traditional Norwegian crafts, stop in the gift shop on your way out. Be sure to wear proper footwear, as some walking is involved. Using our world travel planner, Oslo attractions like Norsk Folkemuseum can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

Norsk Folkemuseum reviews
A nice way to spend a couple of hours. Very interesting look into the history of Norwegian living. I can imagine it's really impressive on a summers day.

I think visiting this museum was my best discovery in Oslo. We were 4 friends on trip and enjoyed every moment of this visit, that is really consistent - if you will to read everything you can easily spend 3-4 hours here. The best part was for us the outside with the evolution of the houses ans the actors inside - amazing ! 100% recommended.
Very picturesque location with many houses, shops and workshops from the middle age up to today. In the Indoor parts pf the museum you can see clothes, artifacts, amongst others. Food was quite good, includind soup and fresh sandwiches, when compared to the offer on most Norwegian attractions and museums. Been here during a Halloween special day where they had several extra activities for kids.
