Maihaugen museum

Maihaugen is the ideal day out for both young and old. Maihaugen is one of the largest open air museums in Norway with 200 buildings from the 1200s and up to today.

Living Maihaugen

In the summer season the museum offers activities, recreation and adventures for the whole family. Join us on a nostalgic journey back to the 20th century. Revisit your childhood memories and share them with your family! Do you remember the 80s?

Relax, enjoy the surroundings and let yourself be transported a hundred years back in time. Dress up, help with the work and join in the fun. Skilled craftsmen offer advice on maintenance and restoration. Proficient guides are available and happy to share their knowledge. Several times a day during summer-season you can experience wandering theatre. That is an exciting and instructive way to convey past history, and contributes to making the past exiting and alive.  

Exciting exhibitions
All year you can enjoy several excellent exhibitions, like the indoor exhibition “We won the land” where you walk through tableaus from Norwegian history from the ice age till today.

In the main building you also find a nice museum shop and café.
