Welcome to Sogn
Folk Museum -
The Heiberg Collection!


The Heiberg Collection – Sogn Folk Museum is a open-air museum with about 40 historic buildings from the middle ages to current time. The open-air museum is located in a beautiful nature- and cultural landscape, with hayfields and pastures. Welcome to one of Norways oldest and largest museums!

The Museum

Large parts of the cultural landscape relates to 19th century agriculture, and during the summer season, the museum manages a farm using the same tools and ways of doing things as they did in Sogn 150 years ago.

The farm helps bring the museum to life. The animals add extra flavour to the experience, especially for children. Here you can encounter animals of local historical breeds, including cows, sheep, pigs and chickens. 

Within the large main building, you’ll find three floors of exhibitions about agriculture, craftsmanship, textiles, clothing, food and drink, as well as an exhibition about traditional holidays. You’ll be able to see traditional workstations, visit the old dentist’s office or peek into the general store. A special exhibition for children and youths show what children’s everyday lives were like in the early 1900s, compared to they were like in Sogn in 2000. We also have a play area with activities, where children can try old toys
