Trøndelag Folk Museum

Sverresborg, Trøndelag Folk Museum is one of the country's largest cultural history museums with collections of buildings and objects, archive material and an extensive historical photo archive. The museum has more than 120 registered antiquarian buildings, and the approx. 80 that are listed shows Trøndelag building customs from town to village, and from mountain to shore. The stave church from Haltdalen dates from the 1170s, but otherwise most of the houses date to the 18th and 19th centuries. The museum's activities date back to 1909, when a group of Trondheimers began to buy by collecting «characteristic types of older architectural art». In 1914, the year after the official foundation, the area around the ruins of King Sverre's medieval castle was used as a site for the new open-air museum.
