A walk around the open air museum is a travel back in time. Both the Rural collection, the Town and the Residential area have houses with open doors you can look through. Most of them also have audio guides telling about the house and the time period it is from.
The Rural collection
- The School. Experience school around 1866.
- The prison. Listen to the story of Martin Pedersen, who was charged for postal robbery in 1830.
- Mytting – The Captain’s house. Beautiful wall paintings and interior from the 1700s.
- Tolstad. An open-hearth house from around the 1600-1700’s, with interior like in the Middle Ages.
