Romsdal Museum

In this open-air folk museum just a 10-minute walk from the center of Molde, you can experience the architecture and history of an entire region while strolling from building to building. The attraction is set up like a town, with Bygata Street lined with pre–World War II houses from the region that have been moved to the museum. There’s also a park with a pond and an exhibit dedicated to Norway’s national costume, the bunad (these days most commonly worn on May 17, Constitution Day). Back in town, continue your architecture tour with a stop at the Molde Cathedral, built in 1957. The third cathedral to stand on the site (the earlier ones were destroyed by fires), it’s among Molde’s most famous landmarks, with a gabled roof, pretty stained glass windows and a freestanding bell tower topped with a copper steeple.
