Between Nidaros Cathedral and Torvet (the square) you will find a small museum that holds many treasures. Over three floors you will find Hannah Ryggen’s tapestry, a large collection of Japanese handicrafts – including a samurai armor from the Edo period, the Danish architect Finn Juhl’s fifties room and Art Nouveau objects you would hardly think existed so far north!
Nordenfjeldske Kunstindustrimuseum is a national museum with responsibility for collecting, managing and disseminating handicrafts and design. The responsibility is made visible in meetings with the public, who will walk out if the museum with a good experience and an interesting thought richer.
