  • Will definitely recommend anyone who is interested in music and visit the Rockheim. The Museum has good wide at most music genres. You have the opportunity to learn a lot about artists and groups. Informative and very educational.

  • I was not sure what to expect from this museum, but a lot of Norwegian music history, and it's a lot more than that. Almost every floor has an interactive part, you get to travel through history by de...  more »

  • Awesome museum! It shows Norwegian music from the 50's until now in an interactive, creative and fun way. Apart from original instruments and banda footage you can find rooms able to teleport you to the glorious past decades of modern music. The staff is really attentive, but the best part was floor number 4, where you can actually play (or mess with, depending on your previous knowledge) a variety of instruments and musical gadgets. The only downside is that written explanations are not in English. But overall a great museum worth the visit.
  • Place which you HAVE TO visit. I had a lots of fun here, especially in black metal room :-)
  • Interesting Museum. Unfortunately the interactive part of it was slightly clumsy. Constantly workers had to come and show how to do what...
  • 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.
  • Nice building, and I love the foyer. Other than that it's an utterly rubbish exhibition with huge, glaring omissions. This museum is a case of "we want a museum even though we have nothing to exhibit". The few things they have are either biased around local acts from Trondheim or black metal.

Where to stay in Trondheim

One of Norway’s major cities, Trondheim offers a wide range of accommodations. As with any Norwegian city, it’s easy to find the high-end hotels with big price tags in the city’s historical center. With a student population of roughly 25,000, the town also caters to more budget-conscious travelers with a fair number of options. Look for reasonably priced hostels near the university. If you’re not opposed to roughing it the way Norwegians love to, check out one of the many campsites in the city’s outskirts. You'll still have access to the city thanks to the local buses that run regularly.
