Archbishop's Palace

Archbishop's Palace

The Archbishop's Palace is located next to Nidaros Cathedral. It is a place where people from the upper classes gathered, where important meetings were held but also big parties were organized. This was the home of the archbishop and sheriff, and was also used as a warehouse. The palace is used today for formal receptions and dinners. It contains several museums. In Lavetthuset you will find the National Exhibition of Regalia including the Crown of Norway and the Rustkammeret Defense Museum. In the southern part is the Museum of the Archbishop's Palace. The museum displays sculptures from Nidaros Cathedral, as well as archeological findings.
