Visit the barn

There are many cute little ones to meet now, and the cows are to be let out of the barn for the first time this spring.

Sunday 19 May

12.00 - 14.00

During the last weeks both piglets and goat kids have been born in the barn at Jørstad.

The cows are to be let out of the barn, and that is a sight you do not want to miss. The cows are skipping of happiness when they come outside to spring after a winter in the barn.

The cows will be let out at 13.00 on the ground below the barn.

The sheep at Maihaugen are allowed to be outdoors all year long, and now there are beautiful lambs who are out on the grazing land.

The pig is still inside the barn with her little ones, as well are the goats and kids. There are also hens and rabbits there.

At the farm you will meet the farmers who answeres your questions.

In the open-air museum many of the historical houses have open doors. Also visit Maihaugen's exhibitions, the Maihaugen shop and our caf´é
