The Trondenes Historical Centre is situated in idyllic historical surroundings on the Trondenes peninsula, 3km outside the town centre. The historical exhibition gives you an insight into the history of the Harstad region from the early Stone Age until today, with an emphasis on the Viking and Medieval Ages, and World War II. The historical exhibitions are enhanced through the use of a multimedia show, lights, sounds and smells. The museum also features a temporary exhibitions this summer: "The Black Dog" 33 myths from Northern Norway.


Trondenes Middle Ages visitor park opens its' gates this summer! The park illustrates how a traditional farm was run in the 13th century. The man of the house was out at sea whilst the woman of the house was responsible for the daily routines on the farm. Through roleplay they narrate the Norwegian and local history of Trondenes. Here you will meet the housewide Jorunn, Haldor the farmhand, Frøydis the maid and Sverre the allodialist. Throughout the entire summer you can see Frøydis and Sverre work on the farm. You will find daily events and acitivites that both children and adults can enjoy. The adults can partake in some traditional food from the Middle Ages on the farm as well. The different seasons bring different themes to the visitor park. In the fall you will see the harvesting and processing of wool and linen. In the winter beer is brewed, and clothes are tailored, whilst the spring brings reperations and sowing to the farm. You can experience this firsthand yourself!


Enjoy a cup of freshly brewed coffee and home-made cakes in a historical environment while you enjoy the panoramic view over Vågsfjord.  Take a walk in the cultural landscape at Trondenes along a marked trail through lush, green countryside teeming with birds, past Asbjørn’s  2 turf-roofed boathouses, several burial mounds and a 2,000 year old farm mound. More recent and painful history has also left its mark with the German camp, Russian P.O.W camp and Finnmark camp. The path has been signposted in Norwegian, German and English. Ask our staff for a map.
