    Visited the archbishop's palace a little reluctantly but had automatic entry after purchasing a combined entry ticket to save some money. But this place was really well presented and provided a great ...  more »

    An exciting space with a lot of history around the Church and the diocese. For the history buffs. Contains the scroll the Bishop's farm, a coin shop and Crown jewels. Very good tutorials then recommend that a taking a guided tour-it is in the price.

    The interior is quite modern and beautiful, but I wasn't so interested in its content. We got the combo pass for the cathedral, so it was a nice side-attraction.

    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.

    A tourist spot to visit close to the cathedral

    Important historical place in Trondheim, Norway. Recommend Island sanctuary and Hall as a good Concert Hall.

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.
