Historic sites in Trondheim
Trondheim was founded by the Vikings in the 10th century, which makes it one of the oldest and most historically significant cities in the country.
This museum is all about art, design and industry. Its permanent collections include modern and contemporary pieces, as well as collections displaying historical art. The museum's European collections date to the 16th century, and its Japanese art exhibit includes pieces fromas far back as the Jomon period, a pre-history period from 12,000 B.C. to 300 B.C.
One of the most interesting and unique elements of the Nordenfjeldske Kunstindustrimuseum are the interior exhibits. These carefully planned rooms display interior design styles from the eras in which they were made. These types of exhibit give you an idea of how styles have changed over time, and how today's designs are influenced by the past.
