In a beautiful, scenic setting surrounding the ruins of one of Norway’s oldest mediaeval castles, we find one of the biggest open-air museums in the country, with buildings from all over the county of Trøndelag. Here you can listen to fascinating stories, learn about traditions and handicrafts, meet the animals on the farm, or go for a walk along the fairy tale trail.
