Trøndelag Folk Museum - Sverresborg is one of the largest open-air museums in Norway! Sverre Sigurdsson Castle was built by King Sverre Sigurdsson in the medieval city of Nidaros, and later Trondheim, in order to fight against his "enemy" King Magnus Erlingsson. Today, the castle is the site of the Sverresborg Trøndelag National Open-Air Museum, one of the largest historical cultural museums in Norway.
The museum contains over 80 impressive historic buildings, houses, two indoor exhibitions, photographs and artifacts. The artifacts in the museum testify to people's lives, how they lived, what they did, how they thought. A collection of over 300.000 artifacts is housed there. All the houses originate from the Trøndelag region and show the construction techniques of this region, and are related to the 18th century. The oldest building located within the museum is the church of Haltdalen from 1170. This museum is a pure example of the citizens' love for their city. It was founded in 1909 thanks to the inhabitants of Trondheim who were great fans of their culture and history, but also who had the desire to preserve the prominent buildings of the city.
