Gjert Falch Heiberg's Museum

The old museum

BRIEF HISTORY OF THE MUSEUM

The Heiberg Collections – Sogn Folk Museum is named after its founder, Gert Falch Heiberg (1871-1944). He was a landowner at Amla in Kaupanger as well as an ardent collector. Around 1900 he started to collect rural antiques from Sogn and farm implements from all over Norway.
This collection proved to be the start of a life’s work of collections and a folk museum in Sogn.

This took place at the same time as Hans Aall founded the Norwegian Folk Museum at Bygdøy near Oslo and Anders Sandvig founded the Sandvig Collections at Maihaugen in Lillehammer.

Sogn Fjord Museum

Sogn Fjordmuseum is a special branch of the Heiberg Collection, situated by the fjord, about 5 km from the museum’s main site.

This is a modern museum, opened in 1989. At a time without roads the fjord was the artery of transport and at all seasons people used the fjord for transport of goods and passengers and for fishing.
