Nordenfjeldske Kunstindustrimuseum


Experience a different way of exploring the museum!

Experience the exhibition at any time of the day!
The windows of the museum in Munkegata and Erling Skakkes gate have been transformed from empty mirrors into a 24-hour exhibition, while the exhibitions is moved to a different location.

Nordenfjeldske will constantly replace what is on display in the “peek cabinets”.

The museum’s collection of nearly 30,000 artifacts will be assessed and digitized before being moved to new locations. Follow the digitization work at DigitaltMuseum. You will also be able to experience parts of the collection in new exhibitions at the Hannah Ryggen Centre, Austråttborgen, other MiST departments and collaborative museums and galleries, both nationally and internationally.


The National Museum of Decorative Arts and Design

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.
