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.
Barrister Per Urdahl (1910 – 2002) from Luster collected antiques from Sogn, and bequeathed his collection to De Heibergske Samlinger – Sogn Folkemuseum.
Now the antiques will be exposed in the museum.
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.
