The buildings demonstrate the way of life of the people of the centuries when they were built and, in addition to the church, there are the baker's, the barber's, and the chemist's among others. The guide regarded it as unlikely that more buildings would be acquired because any older places that might become available would have a much higher market value these days. This has to be good in that they will stay in their proper locations but I cannot help feeling glad that the existing ones were acquired.
This is not as good as the outdoor museum in Oslo - which is my overall favorite - and it would come as an anticlimax if you have recently been to the latter. But in any other circumstances, it is well worth seeing.
The museum is unfortunately only open from mid-May to the end of August. I know the tourist season in Norway has to be short, but I'm not sure it has to be SO short.
