Established as a consolidated museum in 2008, the cluster of locations displays historical buildings, open-air museums, a pilgrim centre and an archive for the middle and north of Gudbrandsdalen. It even has a folk music archive. The Lesja Village Museum is the biggest of three open-air village museums and is made up of 13 houses from the 18th and 19th centuries, put together to display what an old farm would look like. “In the summer, numerous volunteers come together to demonstrate different crafts from the old ages, from wood turning to sweet wrapping,” says Gunhild Mømb, daily manager of Lesja Village Museum.
