Oslo, Norway: Fantastic Folk Museum
The Norwegian Folk Museum keeps traditional culture alive for visitors to Norway's capital. Over 150 old buildings from all corners of the country have been reassembled in a sprawling park. Costumed guides demonstrate slices of rural and urban life, and, every hour through the day, a crowd gathers to enjoy performances of fiddle music and dance. Don't miss the evocative wooden stave church. Located on Oslo's Bygdøy Peninsula (where many museums are clustered) the folk museum is just a short bus ride or scenic boat trip from the center.
