Open air museum with more than 80 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 public building reflects childhood, youth, adulthood and age in the region during the past century. 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.

This place is amazing! If you are not really interested in history and culture, you will become interested while spending time at Sverresborg! The area itself is quite vast, beautiful buildings everywhere - one of my absolute favourites is Oppdalstunet, in particular Detli, it'simply breathtaking (this is the very house Disney studied to make the attraction of Anna and Elsas...

We went to the Easter Egg hunt and helped solve the Easter mystery. We got candy as a prize and the kids all had a lot of fun doing this! The cafe is very cosy and has very good waffles.

A short bus ride outside the city center is this pearl of an open air museum. A collection of historic buildings tells the story of rich and poor from the city of Trondheim and in the countryside around. Dedicated guides takes you around and bring life to the houses. Great visit for families with children!

We walked around old town which is open to anyone. The buildings are quaint! Nothing seemed to stop people without tickets in to the buildings. The tickets were only checked when entering the exhibits. There was no english and it seemed like everyday history to me.

A very nice, folkloric touristic place. Very interesting historic town life, you feel yourself in an old movie. There were some unique handmade materials in the shops. The hat seller lady was so kind that she drove us back to the downtown. Very kind, lovely, beautiful Norwegians

We went to the Folk museum mainly to see the buildings which had been relocated here. Many different types from farms and city settings, mostly from Nord Trondelag. Both my husband and I have Norwegian ancestors, his from the Trondelag area, mine Oppland, Hedmark and Rogaland, so it is easy to imagine our families living in buildings just like many... More

If you are interested in local/Scandinavian history, this is the perfect spot to visit. You will get a glimpse of history, presented as it was. They got a Stave Church from 1170, and buildings from 17th century and up. There is also ruins from King Sverres castle, also from 12th century. Went there with family, and the kids also loved...
