Open-Air Museum

Domkirkeodden covers a rather large area of park land which may be visited free of charge so to say all year through. Our Folk Museum is part of the museum park.

The open-air museum gives a good picture of rural life in the Hedmark area during the 18th and 19th century, from large farms to “husmannsplasser” (cotter’s farms) and “seterhus” (pasture log cabins from mountain farms to which the farmer moved their stock during the summer). The more than 60 different buildings are arranged in yards, not in the purpose of copying exactly how farm life was at an exact historical date, but to show the different architectural traditions of the area. All houses have their own history to tell, and you find them spread widely throughout the beautiful landscape of the open-air museum.

Museum Park

When visiting Domkirkeodden you may very well bring your swim wear, football or picknick pasket as the museum park offers lots of space for all kinds of outdoor activities. There are large lawns well suited for playing or sunbathing, we have park tables and benches spread around the park, the shores of the lake may be used for taking a swim, or you can enjoy a nice walk across the lawns and in between the trees just relaxing your soul and looking at the old houses of our Folk Museum.
