The University Museum's exhibits center around natural and cultural history topics. We are especially interested in engaging children and young adults with topics in science and technology that present ideas in a critical and engrossing way. Students of all ages, from preschools to secondary schools, are welcomed to the museum's varied school programs. The museum has grade-based and learning plan-based offerings associated with almost all of its permanent and temporary exhibitions.

Not much to look at. Some interesting Viking relics (mostly bits and pieces) and a reasonable attempt at connections to Trondheim’s past plus some natural history stuff thrown in. It reminds me of a small town museum. Generally if they have a Trondheim Pass or...More

To keep it short and sweet, The natural history museum is spread out over four floors. Apart from the Polar Night exhibition, it is all a bit old fashioned, with very few explanations in English. I can't not touch on the Polar Night exhibition. As...More

I went to see the Body Worlds Vital exhibit in July and didn't regret it. Dead bodies stripped down to skelets, muscles and nerves really made me see the human body in a new perspective. Fascinating!

I stopped by on a rainy day, looking for information on Trondheim's history. Exhibits are well presented and cover all the historical aspects. Well worth the visit.

I used to come here often as a kid, mainly due to the fact that I was somewhat of a historybuff. Now that I'm older and have travelled some, I'm not all that impressed any more. Most of the good stuffs hidden away in boxes...More

The main museum in building C is a less than average museum of natural history and local archeology. Better not to visit if you cannot read Norweigian since very few explanations are in English or other language. The marine and fish section has mainly plastic...More

It was quite a good experience on a quiet Sunday afternoon. However, I was browsing through without much understanding as most of the descriptions were stated in Norwegian. I left the place with more questions than ever! The Middle Age exhibition building (Suhmhuset) is located...More
