In Norway; manor houses; mansions and similar phenomena are repressed and underestimated; representing a culture which was not suited for Norwegian nation-building in the nineteenth and early twentieth century. In its wider context the narrative of ‘the 400-year night’ has not been very central in the traditional narrative found in Norwegian museums. The history of manor houses and mansions can be divided into three phases; from the Medieval until 1660; from the Absolute monarchy until early nineteenth century and from early nineteenth century until to day. This article will focus museums; monuments and nation-building from the perspective of the backyard of national museums. It is represented by the narrative of a manor house; or rather a princely residence dating from the seventeenth century and turned into a monument and museum at the beginning of the twentieth century. Although the perspective is local; the questions and further work will hopefully be relevant to the complex and dissimilar group of manor houses and mansions on a national level.
