The Oslo Bymuseum is a manor house from the 18th century. The home has been extremely well preserved. It is located in the Frogner Hovedgard. The museum is dedicated to the 1000 year history of the city. The growth of the town as well as its cultural and commercial life come to life through room interiors, models, sculptures, pictures, displays, and photographs.
One of the emphases of the museum is the history of the city throughout the middle ages until today. The first floor of the home has rooms that date back to the year 1750. These rooms can only be viewed during the summer months.
Some of the main attractions of the museum include Bernt Anker’s ballroom. The ballroom dates back to the 1790s. There are many great landscape paintings of the city of Oslo, as well as Christiania during the 19th century.
The home used to be a farm. Since it was built during the middle ages the home and land that surround it offer a more traditional style. There are 3 buildings that are laid out behind the home in a square yard. The garden and the old pastures form Frognerparken. This area also encompasses Vigeland Park.
