I went here during a visit to Trondheim, the buildings come from various parts of Norway, the guide provided much information on the history of the buildings, well worth a visit, recommended.

We went by bus to this open air museum. I would imagine it would be great in summer when all of the buildings and churches are open. There were only 1 or 2 in the old town and a potter at her work (very good)....More

The site of this museum is on top of a ridge overlooking the entire city and the sea. Wonderful cafe with some of the most comfortable chairs in all of Norway.

We saw this site through a Princess cruise excursion showing life in the 16th century. There is a major walk uphill which may not be your thing. An interesting talk on weddings and a sample of brown goat cheese is mostly what I remembered. Otherwise,...More

I visited this museum on a gloriously sunny day, and I am sure this must make a difference as it is largely an outdoor attraction, but I thought it was a great place to visit. There is actually a small(ish) indoor museum covering Norwegian traditions...More

Hello! It is about a ten minute drive from the cruise terminal. There should be taxis waiting at the terminal. You can also come here by bus. Nr 18 stops right outside the museum entrance :)
