Owner description: Rustkammeret is an army museum as well as a resistance museum, emphasizing Trondelag's military history.  The museum shows military history from Viking times, through the Middle Ages and the union with Denmark and later Sweden. The resistance section of the museum takes us back into Norway's recent history, from the start of the German occupation on 9 April 1940 until peace was restored on 8 May 1945

“interesting history stop”
Reviewed 10 January 2014

If you are intersted in history of Norway or warfare this museum is worth the visit. Very early history and displays on Norwegian resistance during WWII were the most interesting. Can tour in less than a hour if selective. Adjacent to Nidaros Cathedeal and free.

“Good Alternative to the Cathedral”
Reviewed 1 July 2013

Yes, I'll admit that after a number of churches and cathedrals I do become bored with the genre. One begins to look like the next. So every so often I will let my traveling companions visit the bhurch and I will head off to find something else of interest.

In Trondheim, it was this small army museum with the requisite stash of olden armaments and defenses.

But what stood out was an excellent exhibition about the Norwegian resistance and what happened in Norway during WWII. I ended up being absorbed by every word and left the place quite pleased with having all but direct experience of this small corner of history.

The frosting: it's free entry. But please it's also not for children.
