The Norwegian Road Museum provides experiences for all the family. The museum now has a new road history exhibition covering more than 1000 m2 and more than 100 original museum objects. These range from small Viking Age glass beads to a massive 12-tonne excavator!
Join us on a journey from the end of the Ice Age through the Viking Age, the Middle Ages and the Age of Union, the start of the modern era and all the way into the future! Experience road history from forest paths to motorways, with exciting narratives about a sunken Viking ship , a scene from a monastery, angry peasants, mischievous ostlers and self-assured motorists. Listen to a machine symphony, admire a gorgeous Cadillac or ponder the future – all at the Norwegian Road Museum.
Our 41 projectors and 28 touch-screens let you see road history in a unique way.
Machinery, activities and games for children of all ages in our large open-air museum that also offers good hiking opportunities.
We have separate activity programmes during the autumn and winter holidays. We also invite you for pre-Christmas weekends with exciting and nostalgic experiences, as well as opportunities for Christmas shopping bargains in the museum’s general store. You can find the programme at www.vegmuseum.no.
