Heddal Open-air Museum consists of well-preserved buildings from the 16th century to the 1930s. The Rambergstugo, which is the main house on the site, is a listed building. You will also find the homestead Hola, which shows the big differences in living conditions. 

All the buildings here have been moved to the museum from the nearby area. The location of the houses gives an impression of what a prosperous farm might have looked like in this area about 200 years ago, and how it stood out from an ordinary homestead. 

This is Heddal Open-air Museum

The Open-air Museum consists of a number of beautiful buildings from Heddal. Here you can get better acquainted with some of them, but we of course recommend you take the trip and experience everything in real life.

The main house. The first building at Heddal Open-air Museum. Taken from the Nigard Ramberg farm in Notodden. Dates back to 1604 with several subsequent extensions. The most spectacular is the rose-painted room on the 2nd floor, the Uppstugo. A real work of art, created by Olav Hansson in 1784. Take a look into the rose-painted home here
