Heddal Disctrict Museum is located right by Heddal Stave Church and has a fine collection of old buildings from East Telemark from the Middle Ages till 1930. Among them are: Ramberstugo, decorated with traditional "rosemaling" painted during the 1780's by the well-known artist Olav Hansson; Håvestova, which is an Inn from 1744; and a tenant farm. The museum includes the national costume designed by Anne Bamle, who redesigned and renewed the folk costume of East Telemark. The museum also displays textile exhibits.
