  • Great outdoor museum of historical houses in the region. The curation was good. Lots of interesting and gorgeous houses to see.  more »
  • This is a good solution for visiting Ålesund. They have both a Boat & small houses - in a very unique area.  more »
  • Great exhibits on housing from the past. Farm homes and buildings are preserved and the different changes in technology are explained. The homes are outside on some steep hills, which could be challenging for some people to get around. The map and booklet were informative, but sometimes inaccurate. Only some of the many buildings are open to visitors.
  • It was pleasant enough - though many of the re erected houses were shut - and those open had no staff present - I suppose that this would be down to monetary reasons (?) However ,one thing that I was perplexed by was a map : On arrival ,one encountered reconstructed artifacts from the Viking era - chain mail ,sword ,shield etc .This was coupled with a potted history of the Vikings - including a map : The map showed as to where the Vikings romed - including the British isles .I was dismayed however that the British isles and it's respective countries - Scotland ,Wales and England wasn't labelled - written across Britain was 'ENGLAND' ........(?) I'm not being petty or pedantic here ; why wasn't the map labelled correctly ? One could have easily labelled the respective countries - or simply 'Britain' - but 'England' (?!) - that only constitutes on part of the isles . 'England' is only one part of Britain .
