    The replicas of the old ships have liked us very much. But also the entire complex is worth a visit and we liked. The opening hours of the Web page to the notice board in the Museum are very contradictory. The Vikingerausstellung had opened but then also if something else was at the entrance. It was also worth a visit, and we are glad that we had the opportunity to look at it. The signposted trail from the Museum would be more than borderline in bad weather. There is however still a fortified way as we have then seen. Somehow we had the impression in Ålesund anyway you tourism somewhat overwhelmed it. Almost everything only in Norwegian. Opening hours are hard to find and even contradictory. There are not only Kreutz drive tourists, which takes place everywhere.

    In this museum there is an exhibition of the history of Northern Norway, a detailed explanation about the Vikings and their lives. Also great view of houses from the area since 1600. Great view of vessels. Activities for children.

    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.

    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!
