Arts & Museums
Since you were a child, were you not always interested in the fascinating contraption that made a strange sound all of us used to imitate as "choo-choo"? Well, the NSB Jernbanemuseet lets you revisit your past by enriching your minds about that very same contraption which the world can't do without now; trains. You will get to see everything from steam engines to diesel ones, wooden railroads and more. And what's fascinating is that you will also get to learn how the human species has evolved along with development in modes of transportation. To know more about the NSB Jernbanemuseet, a visit to the website is recommended.
The historic and artistic Hedmarksmuseet og Domkirkeodden museum describes the medieval scenario of the town. Through the displays of cathedral ruins, castle structures and much more protected by a glass cover, it brings out the combination of old and new in a truly incredible setting. Perhaps, the best way to witness every nook and corner of this delightful place would be by going through all the 60 historical sites on display. There is also a herb garden on-location that adds to the charm. All in all, get to the museum preferably during summertime to witness the additional fun of events and concerts staged on site. Check website for more details.
