Hallingdal Museum

Travel back in time to the beautiful and exciting open-air museum in Nesbyen.

Hallingdal Museum from 1899 is one of the oldest open-air museums in Norway, and houses 30 antiquarian buildings and over 30,000 objects from the entire Hallingdal region. The legendary “Staveloftet” from Ål, was built around the year 1340 and is one of the country’s best-preserved non-church wooden houses from the Middle Ages.

The museum offers changing exhibitions, a permanent costume exhibition, activity days, story-telling theatre and the activity area “energy sources in old rural societies”. There is also a small log-driving station where children accompanied by adults can drive small logs down “the river”.

“Nesbyen Art Landsacpe” is a path through old Nes and up alongside the waterfalls in the museum grounds. This is where the artist Hans Gude found many of his motifs.

Regular events at the museum include Winter’s Day, “Growth of the Soil” and Christmas at the Museum. The museum shop has a good assortment of gifts, books and handicraft. Groups can book guided tours outside normal opening hours, all year round.
