Visit to Norsk Folkemuseum

After lunch will we have a guided tour by foot of the Norwegian Museum of Cultural Heritage. Some parts of the museum are hilly, and good walking shoes are recommended.

The museum

Norwegian Museum of Cultural Heritage is Norway’s largest museum of cultural history. The 160 buildings in the Open-Air Museum represent different regions in Norway, different time periods, as well as differences between town and country, and social classes. The collections are mainly from the time period after the reformation. The Gol Stave Church dating from 1200 is one of five medieval buildings at the museum. 

The museum is located on Bygdøy, a peninsula west of the center of Oslo. Bygdøy holds a large number of museums, the Royal Farm, and a beautiful landscape with forests, trails and nice beaches.

You are free to explore the museum or Bygdøy at your own pace after the guided tour.

Return to City center

Return to the city at your own leisure. Bus number 30 stops right outside the museum and leaves every 10 minutes. Alternatively, take the ferry from Dronningen, which takes you directly to the pier at the city hall. Note: This particular ferry is run by a private company and is not covered by tickets from the public transport company (“Ruter”).
