This is a small museum on two floors when we visited. The third floor in the basement was closed. There was a Japanese exhibition and tapestries by a controversial Norwegian artist on the first floor and an interesting and colourful temporary exhibition by a modern artist on the ground floor. The museum as a whole was lacking in information about... More

I visited Trondheim for couple of days and looked around, the town is so beautiful and enjoyable, I also was interested in their profound culture. The museum is super good to see one of those. It's more about "crafting" than art stuff, but I was able to find awesome artist who represent herself with textile. There are huge collections of... More

Though I did exactly that – went there to spend some time of rainy part of the day, but it was highly enjoyable experience of design through centuries – European and Asian (there is a small but highly interesting exposition of Japanese decorative art). And of course there are stunning examples of modern Nordic (and Norwegian, of course) design. Textiles... More

We went because we enjoy good design and we spent time looking closely at what was on display. We loved the 'paper dragon' currently exhibited (a real challenge to photograph!) and the children's workshop area, as well as the more obvious items from Art Nouveau onwards. The modern tapestries were wonderful. Had we not been touring round, we would have... More

Interesting collection of design through the ages showing the influences on and influence of Scandinavian design. When we visited there was an exhibition (Flora) showing the use of floral images in textiles, wall-hangings and fashion at different times up to the present day. It was very well laid out with an airy feel to the whole exhibition. We had the... More

Friendly staff and nice to visit because it's downtown and has a few items of interest to historians. If you have little time in Trondheim, there are more interesting things to see.

I wish I would have had longer to visit this museum. There was so much to see in the wonderful collections of design and decorative arts that were displayed. Fashion, furniture, glass, silver, ceramics, carpets from the 15th century until today. There is also a special exhibit of Japanese art. This museum is closed on Mondays.
