  • It's a really nice environment for a walk, with the old small house and a lake! Suitable for families with children and couples! Would recommend visiting if you are in Aalesund  more »
  • I went to this museum during a visit to Alesund. It has a large collection of old houses and boats(part was closed due to snow). The museum was founded in 1931, and gives an insight into the lives of ...  more »
  • Today, we had a seminar, and with the help of Kari-Mette the solution was well founded. The extra attraction at " Middelaldermuseet " is well worth the time & money. We will be back !  more »

  • Coming from London, albeit not quite what I'm used to as a museum, Sunnmore Museum was very interesting and pleasantly laid out. Covering a large area of land, from the village put together out of old wooden houses with authentic grass covered roofs, to viking ships and numerous historic boats, it's provides a few hours well spent. Some information signs were missing their English translations, and some displays were unfinished, but it's clearly a continuous work in progress and it's looking good. Also, you can actually touch items here....something which is now just a distant memory in many historical places around the world, as the obvious need to preserve becomes increasingly important as more and more people travel.
  • Cool place to see old Norwegian houses and boats! They give you a pamphlet to read about the houses as you walk around which is helpful too!
  • A good insight into early Norwegian culture. Beautiful grounds to walk & explore.
  • Nice open outside museum with interesting houses from the 1500-1600
  • I've been to many museums and always look for accuracy in items places with "period portrayal" for example; when displaying a home that dates more than a hundred years ago the furniture and items inside should come as close to matching as possible. The inside portion was a bit choppy and didn't flow chronologically. I would have loved to see more english translation so that I could learn more of what've was seeing as my Norwegian is not as fluent as needed and my google translate took a long time to reload. However, it was very cool to wander through the homes and imagine life happening in simpler times and the Viking boat replicas were spot on!
