The ticket gives you admission to the exhibitions in the main building Krona and you may join a guided tour of the open air museum. The tour takes about an hour and is available at 12:00 and 14:00. Krona is open 11:30-16:00 and you can stay here as long as you like.
The open air museum is centrally located in Molde and contains approximately 40 houses, all furnished and equipped according to their respective ages, showing the development of the farmers` culture from the 17th to the 20th century. It is a very idyllic area.
The museum is situated in a nice park area with benches where you can relax, a duck pond and lush flower beds.
Krona is the new building housing the Romsdal Museum – with magnificent wooden architecture inside and out. This building was officially opened by the Prime Minister of Norway in February 2016. The structure of the building is primarily wood, interior as well as exterior. The architectural design is inspired by the regional folk culture and the area`s characteristic landscapes – bringing these elements into a larger, modern and innovative composition. “Romsdalshistorier” (Histories from Romsdal) is the permanent exhibition, telling the story of the valley’s inhabitants and their way of life through the ages. Temporary exhibits will feature between 5-6 new exhibits a year. Kafé Mali serves simple lunches, cakes and coffee, and is the venue for small-scale events. The Museum Shop sells souvenirs and gifts, some made by local craft specialists and designers. The department for traditional costumes (Bunad Verksted) makes reconstructed folk costumes from Romsdal, for both women and men, and is member of Economusée – Artisans at work.
