Overview
More
The Royal Regalia - the Crown, Sceptre, Orb, Sword of State and Royal Standard - are symbols of royal power. The Norwegian king's crown was commissioned by King Carl XIV Johan for his coronation in 1818. Since then, it has been used at four coronations and has had a prominent place at two benedictions. The regalia were last time used in 1991 during the benediction of King Harald V and Queen Sonja.

An interesting museum with the regalia of the Norwegian royalty. The history is also well told in small posts. At the time we visited there was also an exhibition of the role of women and queens in the royal history.

This is a very nicely done display of the Norwegian royal regalia - which are no longer used due to the modernization of the monarchy in the early 20th century. The crowns are beautiful but I liked the robes even more! They are in glass...More

I went here as part of the combo ticket and enjoyed it very much. I spent about 45 minutes here. The crown regalia is lovely. There is plenty of information to read about the crown regalia. There was a restroom available, which was handy. The...More

This museum was included in a combo admission to the church and palace. It was behind the church near the military museum. It had crowns, swords, royal robes and photos of royalty. There were statues and coronation chairs. I am a descendant of King Olaf,...More

Likely worth it for the value with the combo ticket but there are not too many jewels here. Enough to see who has style (the Queen) versus who wanted a bunch of rocks on his crown.

Housed in part of the Archbishops Palace, it is suitably atmospheric. Unlike the British Crown Jewels, these are more modest, without huge, expensive stones, but nonetheless impressive. Associated is a view of the monarchy that has lasted a thousand years, and has gone through many...More

There are three crowns from different monarchs on display, there are descriptions in Norwegian and English so it is good for tourists

No idea how people still post photos when it clearly says no photos. The crown jewels are not replicas, they are the real thing. You can find this small display inside the Archbishop's Palace.

There is a fine line between having too many things on display and having too little. In the case of this small museum, I feel that they could have included a few more examples of, what must be, quite an extensive collection of royal regalia.

Wonderful exhibit of crown regalia and pictures of past coronations including present incumbents. Interesting to observe the more restrained design of their regalia compared to ours in England
