A view at Voss – how Voss became Voss
New main exhibition
In June 2021 we opened our new main exhibition – A view at Voss. Here you can learn more about the history of Voss the last 500 years. Today Voss is so many things – how did we get there?
The exhibition building at Voss Folk Museum opened in 1985 with an exhibition mainly about the farming community in Voss until the 20th century.
After so many years, it was time to think different. The new exhibition show our rich collection of folk art – wood carving, rose painting, folk costumes etc.
In addition we make use of new digital tools, and focus on events and people that have left their mark on Voss also through the 21th century.
The Ekstremsportveko festival is relevant here alongside folk music and folk art.
