This collection has been brought together from various parts of Norway and gives a great depiction of life as it would have been in the past. Schoolchildren in traditional dress performed a dance routine which was enjoyable to watch. Very well worth a visit.

The architecture of the new museum was dramatic and beautiful inside and out. The outdoor village had a great assortment of buildings and many had live interpretation from excellent guides. Reasonable admission fee.

Reconstructed community spanning many years and an interpretive center with movies, artifacts, and a coffee shop/bakery. Many of the buildings have working docents occupying them prepared to answer your question. Also traditional folk dancers. Just a short walk 'uphill' from downtown Molde.
