Photoalbums from our museum

At our museum you will find many exiting things to see and discover, and if you are here during the summer you can meet the animals at the farm, and you can take a look at all the old and newer houses, and of course you can take a stroll inside the main museum and look at all the exhibitions here.

Here on this page you can find a few photo albums that show just a little bit of what’s going on at our museum…

The open air museum

The open air museum

The main facility of the Heiberg Collections – Sogn Folk Museum covers an area of about 52 acres at Vestreim in the municipality of Sogndal. The main building designed by the architects Peter Helland Hansen and Sverre Lie contains exhibits, storage rooms, offices, library, café and shop.

The Melheim house

The Melheim house

The Melheim house was built in the winter of 1939-1940 on the farm Melheim at Indre Hafslo in Luster. It is a so-called central chimney house. It was built with one-and-a-half storeys on a cellar with a stone foundation wall. With pipes leading into the central chimney, the house was heated by means of wood stoves in all the rooms.

The building is a mixture of the Swiss and the Art Nouveau styles.
The interior decoration is based on statistical information how an average family in Sogn lived around 1940.



Modern dwelling

The house "Stella" represent our own time. The idea is to preserve a typical home of the late 20th. century for generations to come.
Normal practice at museums is to collect whole houses, furniture and other implements after they have gone out of use or become antiques. Here, a different approach has been chosen.
The museum have found an actual home in Sogn, which has been cataloged in every detail. The exhibit consist of similar objects, but most are bought new from local shops.

I museets store hovudbygning finn ein utstillingar knytt til jordbruk, handverk, tekstilar og klede, mat og drikke, og ei utstilling knytt til høgtidsdagane våre. Ein kan sjå gamle handverkarverkstader, gå på besøk til det gamle tannlegekontoret eller kika inn i den gamle krambua.

I denne filmen kan du bli med på ein liten rundtur som kanskje freistar til eit besøk. Du er hjarteleg velkommen..

Digitalisering av gjenstandar i Primus….høyres ikkje det spennande ut?
Kanskje ikkje så mange som veit korleis dette går føre seg, og kanskje det ikkje høyrest særleg spennande ut heller, men det kan eg lova deg at det er.
