This brown-painted house was built in the 1960s at Leite in the centre of Sogndal. Furnished with “modern” fridge and freezer, teak tables and TV set, the house provides a correct picture of the innovations in the 1960s.
In addition to two other houses located nearby, the Leite house will provide us with a good impression of the living conditions of the second half of the 20th century.
The Heiberg Collections – Sogn Folk Museum is one of the oldest and finest folk museums in the country. At this museum you can experience how people from Sogn have worked and lived, from the Middle Ages until the present time.
In the main building of the museum you will find permanent exhibits linked to agriculture, arts and crafts, textiles and clothes, food and drink, and an exhibit linked to holidays and important family occasions. The main building also contains old workshops for craftsmen, an old dentist's office and an old general store.
Sogn Fjord Museum is a separate section of The Heiberg Collections. The Fjord Museum is located by the Kaupanger ferry quay, a five-minute drive from the main location of the museum. In this new building you will find objects that can be directly linked to the fjord and life by the fjord.
