The open-air museum

The open-air museum

The Heiberg Collections – Sogn Folk Museum is one of the oldest and finest folk museums in the country. At this museum you can experience how people from Sogn have worked and lived, from the Middle Ages until the present time.

The open-air museum with close to 40 separate buildings spans a time period from the medieval open-hearth cottage to a modern standard house from the late 1980s.

At the museum there are farm buildings from various periods, a sea-crofter's home, as well as a bailiff's residence. We also run a traditional farm with horse, cows, sheep, pigs and hens. We have tried to make the museum an attractive and interesting place for children with two playgrounds and four nature trails.
