Overview
More
Guovdageainnu gilišillju / Kautokeino bygdetun - lies by the riverbank in centre of the community of Guovdageaidnu/Kautokeino. The land here has been cultivated since the beginning of the 1700s. In a reconstructed milieu from approx. 100 years ago, you can visit buildings, turf huts and constructions from reindeer herding and dwelling sites from the outlying grazing areas. The museum building has a permanent exhibition of local Sámi culture. "The Church Cabin 1650" has been reconstructed here. It was built by the Swedish crown and stood originally on what is now the museum site. It is constructed from timber that grew locally at that time. It is now Finnmark's oldest building that is still standing. The museum also has an exhibition of source texts. Opening Hours - see rdm.no

This is a very tiny museum showing the only pre WW_II houses in the village together with a lot of other local Sámi artifacts. If you're into the local culture, go there.
