How did the Norsemen defend their country against enemies in the Viking Age and in the medieval times?
What kind of weapons did the soldiers use in the 18th century? Who were the Caroleans who looted Trondelag in 1718-1719? Why did the German occupation take Norway completely by surprise in 1940? Why are some people willing to risk their lives to defend a nation's interests and values? What is the importance of the Norwegian military defence through history, and what is the importance today? These, and other questions, you will find answers to in our museum, located in The Archbishop's Palace in Trondheim.
We can also advise you on other interesting military historical sites and museums in the region, such as: Kristiansten Fortress, Hegra Fortress, Austått Fort, Hysnes Military Museum and Skatval War Historical Museum.
