The city´s biggest attraction is the Sandvig Collection at Maihaugen, which ranks as the largest open-air museum in Europe and houses 185 buildings plus more than 40.000 objects. Maihaugen presents a rural society through churces, homes, farmyards and tools from the Gudbrandsdalen valley which extends north from Lillehammer. Traditional farming methods and handicrafts are also on show.

Lillehammer Museum of Art hosts a permanent exhibition of Norwegian art, as well as arranging various exhibitions of contemporary art. Oppland Artist´s Centre, the Lillehammer Art Society, Gallery Gullbakke, Gallery NK, Gallery Brodtkorp, Maihaugen, and the Banken House of Culture, are just some of the possible stops on an art lover´s round trip of the town. And at the Metropolitan University, a short distance north of the town centre, you can see the collection of international art that was left to the college after the Olympics. The spring and summer seasons offer a wide variety of musical and theatrical experiences.

The Norwegian festival of literature, the "Sigrid Undset Festival, in May, and several theatrical performances / pageants at Maihaugen throughout the summer, are just some of the many cultural events in the city.
