Rockheim Museum - We love music, do you? A museum you can’t miss because of its fascinating appearance. The museum building itself has an unusual facade and is a visual attraction. Like a box, lined on top with LED glass on which the album covers are interchanged, where various lighting with 13.000 LEDs with individual control is provided. And you can influence the color change at the museum with a phone. At first glance, you will feel like you are standing in front of the best disco club that provides unforgettable music entertainment, and you will not be mistaken.
The Norwegian National Museum of Popular Music Rockheim was founded in 2010, and combines rock and pop music from the 1950s until today. It is located in a former grain warehouse, i.e. in one of the ports in Trondheim today, and it is very popular. Although the idea for the museum originated in 1998, only after eight years did the planning begin, and soon the realization itself. There are a total of 6 floors and each of them presents some of the exhibitions. The stunning building covers 400 square meters, and the total price of the installations installed in the museum was around 300 million Norwegian kroner. Visual effects, sound reproduction, books, music magazines will not leave you indifferent.
The main exhibition is on the 6th floor, and going down to the floors below you will encounter other exhibitions. Through exhibited photographs, instruments, interactive technologies, various musical objects, you will learn everything about the National Popular Music in Norway.
Here you will find a special connection with music, and that will make this museum remain in your special memory. On the 5th floor there is a Rockheim restaurant with stunning views of the city and the fjord. It serves cakes and coffee, and you can have lunch and dinner.
You can visit the restaurant without paying a ticket to the museum. There is also a souvenir shop within the museum.
