Prestehaugen – Lom Open Air Museum

As a breath from the past Lom open-air museum takes you back to time when life was conducted at another pace. Walk among the houses and discover a traditional summer dairy farm, seter, a tenant farm and the main farm. Close your eyes and imagine life all those years ago, can you hear the 12 children who lived here or taste the freshly made butter on your lips? Presthaugen is surrounded by scattered forest, situated just behind Lom mountain center. Tangible farm history - If you were to enter a farm in the 18th century at sunrise, it would be buzzing with life and activity. As much as tre generation were often living together along with tenants, craftsmen unmarried siblings and vagabonds. During daytime most of the work outdoor were conducted, at night people would gather around the fireplace with handcraft telling stories and singing songs. Entering the houses at Presthaugen you can feel the atmosphere of past times. Storstabburet («The large storehouse») from 1613 is possible the biggest in Norway, and considered a national treasure. See traces of past lives in the holes made by poor people out to steal food. If you look closely you might even find hair from horses in between the logs.
