Overview

Open air museum with more than 80 buildings from Trondheim and the Trondelag area. Beautiful surroundings, and from the ruins of King Sverre's Castle you have a wonderful view over the city and the fjord. The impressive main exhibition Livsbilder, Images of Life, in the public building reflects childhood, youth, adulthood and age in the region during the past century. The rural section shows the development in Trondelag buidling styles from the fjord to the mountains, and how people lived in the 18th and 19th centuries in the different country areas.

The young ones love feeding the goats and pigs. You have to be there when it opens for that. For us oldies, the stave church and the old castle were the highlights. Really well restored buildings are abundant around the park. Take a picnic to...More

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 :)
