  • Set in a new building at the rear of the courtyard of the Archbishop's residence, the museum at first seemd unassuming. The admissions price was reasonable (90 NOK at the time of writing) and I thought the main level was the whole museum. I was wrong: there is a good sized lower level with many artifacts and displays, as well as an upper mezzanine. The place was pleasantly large and I spent a good hour and a half taking it in. What you'll find inside are original pieces of statues recovered from restoration of the cathedral done in the 1990s. These pieces were simply thrown into the walls to rebuild following a massive fire in Trondheim in the 1500s. They are interesting to look at for the art style and details and date back to the 1100s and 1200s. Downstairs are numerous displays and artifacts derailing the way the Archbishop's residence and surroundings were going back in time, from examples of weapons and coins to how things were built and models of how the area changed over time. These displays are set in the footprint of the actual original walls that were excavated in the 1990s. It's a fascinating walk through history. Overall I recommend this museum without hesitation. It was basically my favorite place in Trondheim.
  • Very rich and ancient museum. The Archbishop's palace is more than a 1000 years old. Was impressed as much as by the Cathedral itself.
  • Mykje interessant historie, spesielt kronjuvelane i kjellaren
  • A tourist spot to visit close to the cathedral
  • Concert. Nice site.
