A fantastic museum with instruments, farm, gardens and other things. Well worth a visit. Not far from Hurtigruten. Take buss number three or four. You can take the buss from. Nice concerts and a historically interesting place. Wonderful.

Even if you are not a music person,this place is amazing. Very well presented in a great setting with good views of the city. The displays themselves are extensive covering all aspects of music through the ages.
