Stiklestad National Cultural Centre

Museum in Stiklestad

This grandiose wooden structure includes Stiklestad 1030, an evocative exhibition about the Battle of Stiklestad, with dioramas and plenty of shrieks on the soundtrack; a 15-minute film on St Olav; a guided tour including a visit to the church; and a small WWII resistance museum. In the grounds there are over 30 historical buildings (admission free), from humble crofts and artisans workshops to the Molåna, a much grander farmhouse. In summer, actors in period costume bring the buildings to life.
