A Cultural History District Museum

Lågdalsmuseet is a cultural history district museum for Kongsberg, Sandsvær and Numedal. The museum is located in the loop area of ​​the old Glitre farm, which is the mountain town’s best-preserved mining official’s home, built in 1812. Today, the venerable empire building is decorated with stately interiors from various periods.

Numedalstuna has several rose-painted living rooms and a courtroom, where three generations of Røysland residents consolidated their position of power in Uvdal in the 18th century. It is said that the courthouse was moved to the museum because the “old man” was left there. The main building houses the “Small Gallery” and various exhibitions, including folk art and the Rolf Hansen exhibition “Ceramics for joy.” There are also shops and workshops by several of the city’s craftsmen.

The pleasant little Kongsberggata consists of a miner’s living room, a gunman’s house, a bell farm, a schoolroom and a well – stocked shop.

In summer, Telemark cattle, draft horses, goats with kittens and sheep with lambs graze on the loops at the museum. There is a loft set, a painting workshop and a rich playground for children.
