Some explanation. The sign omits Moltke Moe, Norway's first professor of folklore. In a speech given at the establishment of the museum, Moe wrote that "the aim of this collection is to give the Norwegian people a picture of the life that was lived in Norway down through the centuries, our fathers' ways of building houses, their furniture, their tools and utensils, their dress, in short the entire environment in which they moved and lived, and about which the memory now is gradually fading. (Quoted in Anne Eriksen, From Antiquities to Heritage, 2014, p. 103)
