The Norsk Folkemuseum in Oslo is a special museum, not only because it is an outdoor museum, but because it does not tell of kings or queens, artists or warriors, but it tells of ordinary people. The museum exhibits the rich or poor, how they lived, and where they lived.
Over 150 buildings and faithful reconstruction of houses from different eras, different places, and different backgrounds, illustrate how men and women have lived (and lived) in Norway. This is the Cultural Historical Museum in Oslo, the largest of its kind in Norway.
The museum displays Oslo’s major buildings like the Goals, as well as the medieval wooden church of the thirteenth century. It also shows the museum in 1907 and the Raulandstua, which dates back to the 14th century.
The Norsk Folkemuseum is located on the Bygdøy peninsula, where there are other important museums in Oslo, like the museum of the Vikings, the Kon-Tiki Museum (which houses the raft which Thor and his companions crossed the Pacific in 1947), and Fram Museum, dedicated to polar expeditions. In the summer, the museum is open daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Ticket prices are at 13 euros.
