Our history

In 1985 the government decided to utilize the running water in Dokkfløy, a lake close to Kittilbu to produce energy. During this process they discovered people had used the area for thousands of years. Moose traps, traces of iron production and extraction of tar were some of the discoveries they made. Today you can experience some of these heritages by visiting our culture trail.

During the 1600 and 1700s the farming activity increased in Kittilbu. Today the farms are mostly used for recreation, but at Volden summer farm which belongs to the museum, you can experience summer farming as in the old days. Here we have farm weeks and serve farm lunch every Sunday during the season.
