(Not So) Wordless Wednesday - Post 182: Molster Farm

I recently scanned some photographs from our 1999 trip to Scandinavia, including a visit to Oslo and Voss in Norway. I am posting some of these photos.

This is a photograph from our visit to Molster farm on the hill above the town of Voss in Norway.

When we visited Molster farm in 1999, it was a "living history" museum set in the 1850s, with docents in costume demonstrating family life in the kitchen, the living areas, and the work areas.  There was a small historical museum and gift shop also.  I found it very interesting.

One of Linda's Norwegian ancestral families, that came to Wisconsin in 1855, lived on Molster farm in the years just before they migrated.
