  • We traveled as a group. Two floors of interactive exhibition was ok. Entrance/Foajeen could a have done more with this was a large area, and it was natural that one stays a lot there. This was completely sterile and not something that reminded of that this is a rock museum. Some music and maybe some monitors could have done themselves. There were plenty of room to create mount with effects and equipment from the North more recent music history. Good thing we have a museum, but this was too tame

  • Many great interactive installations that inspire in all ages. Recommend everyone that is in Trondheim to take a visit here!

  • If you are a Norwegian music fan, than this is the place for you. For me it is ok, but you can shelter from the cold weather during my hiking on Sundays by visiting its museum to warm up.  more »

  • This is a fun place!! It's a great music museum with tunes from every era and fun interactive exhibits. I made my DJ debut here, I'm practically famous. There's also a fun dance area, try it! The museum takes a while to walk through so don't go here if you're in a rush. The museum is really close to the Hurtigruten docking area.
  • Quite nice. Would get more out of it if knew Norwegian music. Nice food upstairs.
  • As a music lover, I found something to get hands on (come to find out what you can try). And, as a traveller, I learnt something about Norwegian songs. View from here is nice too (even nicer if it is good weather:( )
  • Interesting museum but little weird opening hours
  • Funny expierience and very informative museum if you are into (norwegian) pop-culture a must see
