The Archbishop's Palace

Closed today

Together with Nidaros Cathedral, the Archbishop Palace play a central role in Norway’s history.

Work began in the second half of the 12th century and is today one of the best preserved buildings of its kind in Europe. The Archbishop Palace has been both the residence of the most powerful men in Norway and a military installation. The museum features original sculptures from the Cathedral, and tells the colourful history of the building through archaeological discoveries found on the site.
