If you're going to go to the Nidaros cathedral, you should do everything in the area and get the combination ticket. The exhibits have a lot of history and displays which show you more about old Trondheim!

It was such a great addition to our visit to the cathedral. Best to get a combined ticket from the visitors center for just 160 krons. This gets you access to the cathedral, the royal crowned jewels and the archbishops palace :)

The archaeology that has been discovered gives a fascinating insight to life of the people in medieval times as well as the ecclesiastical role of the bishop and the restoration of the cathedral.

Well worth a visit. A wide range of pieces of the old ruined cathedral on the ground floor were eclipsed by exhibits on the lower level. As others have indicated the film is worth seeing and puts the building's history into perspective.However enjoyment would have...More

Sadly, as one will learn from excellent short guided tour, the former museum burnt down in the '90s and lost all the relics. However, from the ashes were discovered more history once lost in time. This museum displays some amazingly old statues from the nearby...More
