Overview

The Ål Stave Church dating from the latter part of the 12th century was richly decorated at the time of its demolition in 1880.

The main doorway and the ceiling painting can be seen at the medieval exhibition at the Historical Museum in Oslo. Some of the church's fittings as well as a copy of the Ål ceiling can be found at Ål Church. The site of the church was examined and planned and today it forms part of the church park.

In the 1990s, the Ål Stave Church Museum in Prestegardslåven in the church park opened. The museum restores and displays decorative panels from stave churches and it has a copy of the Ål doorway. The exhibition provides information about Ål Stave Cchurch and about Norway’s other stave churches in Norway.

Free admission for children up to the age of 16, when accompanied by an adult.
