Norway's oldest rural museum
Trysil is a typical forest and mountain village, which sits along the hillside. The Trysil Engerdal Museum includes farmhouses, farm buildings, and construction from outlying fields totaling 21 buildings which reflect how the locals lived in Trysil in the 18th and 19th centuries. The contrast between eastern and western influence contributes to the distinctive character of the architectural tradition. The museum collection includes the three most common types of farmhouses: the three-room cottage, the two-story cottage, and the Akershus-styled cottage (which has a similar ground plan to the three-room cottage).
