The Norwegian Folk Museum keeps traditional culture alive for visitors to Norway’s capital.
Follow American travel writer Rick Steves to Norsk Folkemuseum in Oslo where over 150 old buildings from all corners of the country have been reassembled in a sprawling park. Costumed guides demonstrate slices of rural and urban life, and, every hour through the day, a crowd gathers to enjoy performances of fiddle music and dance. Don’t miss the evocative wooden stave church. Located on Oslo’s Bygdøy Peninsula (where many museums are clustered) the folk museum is just a short bus ride or scenic boat trip from the center.

Rick Steves Snapshot Norway
Paperback – September 22, 2015
Rick Steves Snapshot guides consist of excerpted chapters from Rick Steves European country guidebooks. Snapshot guides are a great choice for travelers visiting a specific city or region, rather than multiple European destinations. These slim guides offer all of Rick’s up-to-date advice on what sights are worth your time and money. They include good-value hotel and restaurant recommendations, with no introductory information (such as overall trip planning, when to go, and travel practicalities).
