About Voss Folkemuseum
Moelstertunet is a picturesque farmstead, with sixteen buildings surrounding an open farmyard. All of the buildings are still standing right where they were when the last family moved out in 1927. Walking through the farmstead will give you a unique insight in building traditions and living conditions in older times. The oldest building on the farmstead, an open-hearth log house, dates from the early 1500s. In the nearby exhibition hall a comprehensive exhibition will tell you more about how people lived and worked in Voss in older times. The museum also displays temporary exhibitions throughout the year. Voss folkemuseum has a huge collection of artifacts, folk art, tools and other objects. There is also a big archive, a small library, and one of the biggest museum collection of photos in Hordaland. From Moelster you have a wonderful view of Vossevangen and the Vangsvatnet lake. At the entrance you will also find a small cafe With a great view and a Museum shop. May 18th - August 31st: open daily 10-17 September 1st - May 16th: Mondays-Fridays 10-15 Sundays 12-15

Unlike many other folk museums, where the buildings have been moved to the site from elsewhere, these buildings are all in their original locations and provide a rich atmosphere of what farm life was like for hundreds of years up to the 1920s. The exhibits...More

The Folk Museum at Voss is well worth the climb up the hillside from the town and you get some pleasant views during the ascent. I estimate it took us about half an hour to walk from the town centre to the museum. The museum...More

We were hesitant to visit another Folk Museum (we toured the one in Oslo as well) but this was completely different and we are glad we did. If you walk up here, prepare yourself for a pretty steep hike with good shoes or boots. There...More

This is a great look back to Norway in another day and time... a time of struggle and hard work to survive. Full of history and well worth a few hours to visit.

A first seems rather like a clutch of buildings. But the guide who showed us round was super informative and the interiors of all buildings were most interesting. Very perfectly preserved. And what a view

There are a number of old Norwegian homes and barns moved here from the surrounding countryside. They come from different eras. The grass/sod roofs are interesting. There are interesting exhibits inside the museum building, too, with a lot of artifacts. I particularly enjoyed the kitchen...More
