Meldal Village Museum

Situated along Gudbrandsdalsleden
Meldal Village Museum is beautifully situated in the slopes over Meldal center

Meldal Village Museum is beautifully located in Bergslia, on the hill above Meldal. Mother museum consists of 22 old buildings, including a traditional residence of Trøndelag, a smallholding from 1920, a hearth and farm houses. The museum displays the village's architectural traditions, housing and farming methods from the 1600s until the First World War.

The museum has a stunningly beautiful and detailed interior. Much of the museum's collection of artifacts originates from Eilert Støren's large private collection. He was a rural doctor in the area from 1889 to 1929, and was an open-air museum pioneer. The museum was established in 1931.

Meldal museum is owned and run by Orkland municipality. The museum is a member of the Norse Kulturarv (Norwegian Cultural Heritage)
