About

Heddal local museum is situated right next to the Heddal stave church. At the local museum you will find 15 buildings, explore how Norwegian houses and construction methods have changed from the middle age until the 1930s.

At the main homestead you can have a look at how a wealthy farm in Telemark appeared 200 years ago. Here you will find Rambergstugo, one of the most significant buildings at the museum, with a beautiful rosemaling interior by the painter Olav Hansson from 1784. In Rambergstugo there is also an exhibit on Bunadmaker Anne Bamle, the creator of the traditional folk costume in eastern Telemark.

The Hola smallholding gives you an impression of life on a small farm during the 19th century. The Heddal local museum and Heddal stave church is connected through the walk “A walk through time”.
