Open air museum with more than 60 buildings from Trondheim and the Trondelag area. Beautiful surroundings, and from the ruins of King Sverre's Castle, you have a wonderful view over the city and the fjord. The impressive main exhibition Livsbilder - Images of Life in the new public building reflects childhood, youth, adulthood and age in a the region during the past century. The Ski museum tells the story of skiing as a competitive sport and a practical means of transport. The rural section shows the development in Trondelag buidling styles from the fjord to the mountains, and how people lived in the 18th and 19th centuries in the different country areas.

Take your time to enjoy this lovely outdoor museum. Most buildings were open...guides were very informative. We had a lovely day to explore one of Norways outdoor museums. It is definitely worth a visit.

Wonderful place to visit, you will be even more satisfied if you manage to catch sunny and dry weather. You can easily spend 2-3 hours there, even though the place is not very big. Children will be entertained with small performances which take place at different time and in different corners of the museum. Adults will be supplied by guides... More

It was very cold and snowing when we went and not all of it was open, and it was quite bizarre to be up in the hills looking down over the town and water. This was well laid out and had plenty to see for all ages.

We have been to a number of outdoor museums in Scandinavia so far, and this one stands out. It is well set out, with a range of buildings faithfully recreating history. Most of the buildings were open, and there were a number of excellent guides to give information and answer questions. Some of them were university students working through summer,... More

Very nice place to spend a few hours in Trondheim. You get a good view of the city from the castle ruins (just watch out for the sheep droppings). The buildings are well-preserved and the staff there are very knowledgeable and friendly. Be sure to see the "party house" when you go. It's a rare and unique structure built of... More

While we were in Norway, we visited many of the traditional houses and got to know the history of the houses and their previous tenants. The guides were very passionate and did not mind bringing you around for a mini tour. They also spoke perfect English and gave clear explanation. Highly recommended! However, give yourself ample time to explore all... More

We are arrived at the museum at 2pm. We asked if we had enough time to see most of the buildings in 2hours. They close at 4pm. We paid the entrance fee and were told we could have an English guide for 1hour. A guide came and said that it is best to see the farm area buildings. He opened... More

We had a rather too hurried visit here - less than one hour but you could spend two hours or more, especially if a number of the houses on view are open for looking around. There are some fascinating examples of old homesteads to be seen. I recommend having one of the young and very informative guides take you into... More

This museum gives a great insight in how live was in Trøndelag in earlier days. Both the exhibition and the old houses ar definitely worth a visit.
