Folk Museum of Norway, Oslo Overview

Norwegian Folk Museum or Norsk Folkemuseum is a museum that represents the cultural history of Norway's different time zones, regions, and towns. It is one of the largest open-air museums. Located on the Bygdoy Peninsula, the museum houses one of Norway's oldest buildings, the Gol Stave Church dating back to the year 1200, as well as other ancient buildings like the Standard Oil gas station, a stamp mill, a log house, etc. In addition, the museum has a variety of permanent and temporary exhibitions on display, such as folk art, folded toys, costumes, semi-cultural artefacts, various documents and artwork collections.

The Countryside exhibition provides an entertaining look at Norway's rural lifestyle; the Old Town arena displays the stories of Oslo's history and the world war II stories of Finnmark. In the nearby cafes that line the museum streets, you can enjoy Danish cuisine and pick up souvenirs from the museum's shops.
