The Tulip Park
The fine park surrounding the manor house is inspired by the English landscaping style. Since the museum’s opening in 1909, Brekkeparken has been a park for all the citizens of Skien, open to the public throughout the summer months. Brekkeparken is renowned for its magnificent floral displays. 27,000 tulips will blossom this summer.
Old farm buildings
14 farm buildings have been moved to this park and complete this open air museum. Brekkeparken and the romantic garden, which blooms throughout the season, offer you experiences and recreation. The extensive park has surrounded Southern Brekke mansion since 1820.
Have a nice meal – on Skien’s ”roof” – overviewing the Telemark canal
The museum café and restaurant, Brekkeparken kafe, has a magnificent view from Skien’s “roof.” You can see the centre of the town and the two waterways that made Skien a city. The museum restaurant was built in 1928 in the national romantic style.
Opening hours 2016: 1 May - 31 August, 11am-5pm.
