A walk through history

Following in the footsteps of ordinary people can be something very special. That’s what you get at Tuddal Open-air Museum. Here you can travel back in time, in your own shoes, and experience a typical Tuddal farm in the 18th and 19th centuries. Of course this is interspersed with the occasional surprise such as folk tales and friendly farm animals.

Traditional prosperity

Tuddal Open-air Museum consists of 13 buildings. The oldest are from the 17th century. The idyllic open-air museum with living area, attic, coop, stables, sauna, barn, cookhouse and crofter’s cabin provides a comprehensive view of the past. In the open-air museum you will also find a facility building with an exhibition, a simple kiosk, toilets and a large patio perfect for picnics and spending time outdoors in historic surroundings.
