2022 ‘Timescape 1600-1914’, Norsk Folke Museum, Oslo

My next stop after the Norwegian Maritime Museum was the Norsk Folke Museum. To be honest I wasn’t expecting much but this place was incredible. So much to see and many exhibitions. I loved the introduction text to ‘Timescape’, although the rest of the exhibition did not really live up to its creative promise. In many ways it was not too different from an old-fashioned local museum display except that the material on display was stunning, everything was presented beautifully in top quality display cases making it just a joy to wander around. The digital labelling was a bit annoying because as a user you don’t read them unless really motivated. They also had these incredible displays of individual rooms from different periods that there real rooms from real homes.
