We saw this site through a Princess cruise excursion showing life in the 16th century. There is a major walk uphill which may not be your thing. An interesting talk on weddings and a sample of brown goat cheese is mostly what I remembered. Otherwise,...More

A beautiful place not far from the city (with a direct bus line) that you have to visit while in Trondheim. The size of the place is perfect for half a day, especially if its a hot summerday. I was there from 12 to 15.30....More

Sverresborg is the kind of museum attraction that I love and one certainly gets a lot of bang for ones buck. It seems like, perhaps, five museums in one and therefore has a bit of something for everyone regardless of age. There is a conventional...More

We have been to several folk museums and this one was among the best. A lot of very old buildings have been relocated to this site, which also is home to a 12th C royal castle ruin. Quite a few of the buildings were open...More

Hey! Thank you very much for your great feedback. Unfortunately there was some "noise" at the museum while we were preparing for the big concert, but we are very glad to hear that you enjoyed your visit :)

This is one thing Norway does really well. Theres plenty of old restored building to visit. Theres also good presentations in a number of the buildings. Some good views from the top of the hill. Plenty of photo opportunities

Hello! It is about a ten minute drive from the cruise terminal. There should be taxis waiting at the terminal. You can also come here by bus. Nr 18 stops right outside the museum entrance :)
