Romsdal Folk Museum
The completed museum complex is an architectonic attraction and a treasured landmark which embodies a whole region’s history and identity. The intention for Romsdal Folk Museum is to let the structure signal its meaning and function through anarchitectural expression and the use of place-specific materials. It conveys an open and progressive attitudethat makes diverse utilization possible. The range of perspectives and activities ensure a broad audience, with the museum becoming a living center for the exploration of the region’s history, contemporary culture, and even future.
