EGGE MUSEUM

The Outdoor Museum, with its 11 buildings, shows Trøndelag’s agriculture during many different phases. There are activities and demonstrations of old work techniques daily during the summer season. The Mid-Norwegian Agricultural Museum has a unique collection of many generations of agricultural machinery. If you follow the network of pathways through Eggemarka, you will arrive at the museum’s mill and gate saw.

The County Governor’s Mansion at Egge is one of Steinkjer’s most prominent buildings. The house was built in 1919, and became the home of County Governor Halvor Bakke Guldahl. Its architectural style is classical and reflects the way of living that government officials liked to demonstrate during the first part of the century. The house now contains Egge Museum’s administrative department and the premises are used for various exhibitions organized by the museum.
