“Definitely worth your time to take a bus to visit here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

Our Swedish friends told us about this place or we would probably not have gone. We had a wonderful personal tour (we were the only english speaking visitors at the time) with a musician that tells you the history of the various instruments and then will play on a replica. It was so much better than the usual museum. Do take the time to go out of downtown to see this.

“Great museum in lovely parkland”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

The musical instruments exhibited in the Ringve Museum alone were worth the visit, but the highlights were the demonstration of the instruments by the multilingual museum guides. The cafe serves lovely lunches and cakes. Easy to get to by bus from the Trondheim city centre, this museum is not to be missed.

“Amazing instruments”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

Loved this museum. The guide, who had the most amazing-sounding first name, was entertaining and informative. He played a few instruments for us.

Shame there isn't a more interactive bit for kids to try their music skills.

“An interesting place to visit although it would be better titled keyboard and violin museum”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2012

I waas on a guided visit and we were rushed through the various rooms. There were any things to look at and insufficient time to study them. The guide was excellent in his knowledge and keyboard playing. As a trumpet and french horn player I would like to have seen more brass instruments...
