Hardanger Folk Museum
Hardanger Folk Museum information
Lonely Planet review
One of the prettiest little villages you’ll find in Hardangerfjord, Utne is famous for its fruit-growing and for the excellent open-air Hardanger Folk Museum , which acts as a repository for the cultural heritage of the Hardanger region. It comprises a collection of historic homes, boats, shops, outhouses and a school, plus exhibitions on Hardanger women, weddings, the famed Hardanger fiddle and fiddle-making, fishing, music, dance, orchard crops and the woodcarvings of local artist Lars Kinsarvik; it also bakes delicious local cakes on Tuesdays (noon to 3pm) in July.
