  • The museum gives you an overview and history of Norway's pop music culture. The interactive exhibits and overall feel make it a worthwhile visit... if you speak Norwegian. The information is mostly in Norwegian and the very limited information booklet in English is not that useful. I visited on an open day when the entrance was free, but I don't think I would ever visit it again.
  • An unique building, a museum, an exciting experience for all ages, that's dedicated to more than local popular music - like rare instruments, multimedia and several opportunities to play a part in the exhibition yourself!
  • Amazing museum in trondheim...its a must. Huge trip through the Norwegian musical history.
  • Nice museum, with lots of stories and interactive content. Requires some time for proper immersion.
  • Great multimedia and historical experience. Only had 45 minutes to visit, but I'd have needed 4 hours or more! Indispensable if you have a good musical taste.
