I could not get into the Museum itself but the park like setting of the whole place is really nice. They have recreated some 18th Century settings there. Since my visit was on the Midsummer Solictice there was lighting the traditional bonfire and the place...More

I visited the folk museum on midsummer's day. Great place, lots of traditional buildings from various eras in Norwegian history. The museum is set in a nice park which definitely adds to the experience. Don't miss the museum of beer and brewing across from the...More

If you have just 1 hour to see Trondheim - then this is where you should go. We liked it even better than the cathedral in the centre of the city. You will walk within the limits of a fairly large park, with paths to...More

Fascinating history here! But it seems that the museum is oriented most towards entertaining younger children. Would have appreciated more information on the Birkebeiners, King Sverre himself, and the historical significance of this place.

More than anything, this is a great place to spend a couple hours with family (especially if coming from abroad), going for a walk, checking out the old buildings and enjoying the scenery. Best in the summer. Nice cafe to visit afterwards.

I'm sure I would have rated this higher in summer. We visited in winter, so it was a little cold to walk around in the open air. Also, a lot of houses and buildings are closed in winter. Still, there was enough to see for...More

Take your time to enjoy this lovely outdoor museum. Most buildings were open...guides were very informative. We had a lovely day to explore one of Norways outdoor museums. It is definitely worth a visit.

Wonderful place to visit, you will be even more satisfied if you manage to catch sunny and dry weather. You can easily spend 2-3 hours there, even though the place is not very big. Children will be entertained with small performances which take place at...More

Hello! It is about a ten minute drive from the cruise terminal. There should be taxis waiting at the terminal. You can also come here by bus. Nr 18 stops right outside the museum entrance :)
