Norway’s largest museum of cultural history featuring the world’s oldest open air museum and large indoor collections.
I learnt that color photography is older than I thought: Norway 1910 – in Colour: An exhibition of the first color documentation from Norway, from Albert Kahn’s Archives de la planet in Paris. Some parts of Norway reminds me of Tyrol. I had to think that when I was small the straw weren’t big bale of straws whe can see everywhere in the world which look the same way. We called them Straw men because they looked like man with a gown.
Outside they built houses from all over Norway. I have to admit that I become tired after 3 hours and I would recommend, come early, take something to eat with you, make regulary breaks … or come twice. I was too tired to go to the house of the middle ages and I missed the one or other parts. But I would have loved more explanations on the houses and the way they lived there. Or how long a house with gras on the roof survives? Why did they have sleeping houses and how many slept inside and why were no windows in this house? And so on and so forth. I want to understand and they weren’t very in explaining.
But the houses and the wooden church are definitely worth to be seen.
