Museum of Norwegian Folklore

Highly recommended
Set in parkland, this museum looks back over the cultural history of Norway since the Middle Ages. 158 buildings illustrate the rural wooden architecture of different regions of the country. The most representative come from Setesdal, Numedal, Telemark and Gol (fine stave church). Inside its large buildings, there is an ethnography section focusing on Sami culture and displaying a collection of traditional costumes and folk art.
