Take a Yuletide Trip Through Time
If you are traveling to Norway for the upcoming holidays and have time to squeeze in one more activity, it’s a perfect time to visit the Norsk Folkemuseum, located in the heart of Oslo. Prepare to embrace the holiday spirit and be dazzled by “A Christmas Tale,” an exhibition about past and present yuletide traditions. You’ll see displays of customs from the old rural community, take in the trends of the 1800s, and experience what Christmas was like in the post-war period.
At the Apartment Building, a structure that’s part of Norsk Folkemuseum’s open air campus of historical buildings, you can visit charming rooms decorated for Christmas in the style of bygone times spanning the last 100 years.
