This museum is all about showing how people lived in the middle ages, here people work to show tourists they way of living. Its possible to see farming, storytelling, interacting with a few animals and having the feel of the old days. The area is built on the old casle to King Sverre, as the name Sverres-borg, sverres-castle.

We were here on a shore excursion and it's a charming, very informative museum. The restored buildings are interesting and cover a wide range of time and styles. There was a lovely display of native costume and a local artist's ( Anne Langsholt Apaydinli ) paintings. *** There is a great deal of steep incline walking required to see all... More

You can even see a very simple Stave Church here. There are country and town houses to admire here. From the top you have great views over Trondheim and its fjord. The museum of dentistry in the town section shows you equipment from 1895 until about 1960. The treadle drills looked dreadful! It makes you relieved to be alive now... More

I've been here occasionally for the forty years I've lived here. Every time I visit, I wonder why it's been so long since last time. This time around we went here with the kids in order to celebrate Midsummer. It was quite a crowd who enjoyed themselves.

For us, if you have half a day to spare in Trondheim, this is time well spent. The temporary exhibition (until November 2014) presents beautiful ladies' dresses from various part of Norway and as a counterpoint/complement, lovely paintings by a Norvegian-American paintress. Then take a stroll through the very interesting permanent exhibition on the lower floor showing Norwegian folk life,... More

Even on a wet cold day the walk around the historical buildings was interesting and pleasant - it would be lovely in nice weather. The indoor exhibits in the visitors centre ranged from the unusual (walls and walls of chainsaws) to the fascinating - the exhibits of different aspects of life in different periods was particularly well done.

A nice glimpse into the lives and times of some specific regions in the country. Entire cottages, houses, buildings and a stave church are relocated in the vast open area. A short guided tour would be great and makes the visit more worthy.

This is a museum created by the people of Trondheim,with all the historical stuff including entire buildings....the tavern restaurant is one of them....relocated here.Many exhibits were closed for the holiday season and this,I felt was unfair.
