Photoalbums from our museum

At our museum you will find many exiting things to see and discover, and if you are here during the summer you can meet the animals at the farm, and you can take a look at all the old and newer houses, and of course you can take a stroll inside the main museum and look at all the exhibitions here.

Here on this page you can find a few photo albums that show just a little bit of what’s going on at our museum…

The Henjasand cluster of houses

This sea-crofter’s place was located by the fjord at Hermansverk in Leikanger as one of several smallholdings under the farm Henjum. The siblings Kari and Anders Henjesand were the last occupants of the cottage until 1974 and 1980 respectively.

The people at Henjasanden were crofters and farmers. In addition to farming, Anders worked as a cooper, and Kari worked at the local juice and berry factory.

The open-air museum

The open-air museum is located in a natural setting with hayfields, cultivated fields and pastures. There are footpaths and trails, playgrounds and nature trails, which makes this area an attractive recreation area for young and old people. But most importantly, the open-air museum consists of close to 40 antiquarian buildings from the Middle Ages until the present time.
