We got the combination ticket for Archbishops Palace (home of Norway's Crown Jewels), the Nidaros Cathedral and Archaelogical museum. Having seen several museums on our cruise already, we found the museum a little boring. However, the Archbishops Palace was well set out with good explanations...More

Follow the centuries long construction of the Nidaorsdomo in scale models as well as a wide variety of artifacts in the upper gallery. then be sure to have enough time to see ALL of the basement level, the Crown Jewels will entrance you!

So much to see, displayed in spacious setting. Sculptures from the cathedral are on display. Excavated parts of an old mint under the palace floors got my interest and being a bit foot-weary, enjoyed the video. Make time to watch it.

Like many, we came here on the combination ticket. It is one for the archeology purists but will not be everyone's cup of tea. Lots of fragments upstairs and the site of the archbishop's mint downstairs. Do watch the video about how the cathedral is...More

I was ready to leave not long after arriving, then we found the film about the history or the cathedral and its ongoing renovations. Fascinating.

With the combined ticket, you can enter the museum and check out the exhibits. Be sure to check both upstairs and down. The old mint on the lower level is very interesting (also interesting that the church was allowed to mint coins for awhile). You...More

The museum in itself is interesting, but remember to take a look at the video running in the auditorium, explaining about the building and renovation of Nidarosdomen. It is a very interesting presentation. The archaeological exhibits at the museum is also very interesting, so take...More

The ticket for the Archbishops Palace is available as a package ticket with the Crown Regalia and the Cathedral - so it won't really cost you anything extra to see this museum as well. Some old statues and gargoyles are displayed very elegantly and there...More
