It's a really nice environment for a walk, with the old small house and a lake! Suitable for families with children and couples! Would recommend visiting if you are in Aalesund 😊

Today, we had a seminar, and with the help of Kari-Mette the solution was well founded. The extra attraction at " Middelaldermuseet " is well worth the time & money. We will be back !

This open-air museum was our favorite tourist attraction in Alesund. The original buildings were brought from various places in Norway to tell the history of the country. It is possible to imagine what the life of these people was like centuries ago. It is possible...More

This is a great place to visit if you are near Alesund. Set in stunning scenic surroundings beneath snow capped mountains the museum is the perfect place to explore a collection of historic rural homes of timber construction.

Interesting outdoor museum. Exhibits are quite spread out and not labeled well. Be prepared to walk up hill, down hill, and to backtrack trying to get your whereabouts. There are 2 maps and neither was particularly useful in getting about the property. It would be...More

A really beautiful setting with some simply stunning views. The museum is mostly outdoors with old timber buildings and Viking boats. The views in and around the grounds are worth the visit on their own. Beautiful views of water, snow topped mountains, tall trees and...More

From the cruise ports? How do I get there on July 2nd?. Cruise docks at 9:25 am. Will I have enough time to spend a couple of hours there before the museum closes early for the private event (which I think is probably from my Cruise ship)?. Also, Do we have to purchase the tickets at the Museum?
