Overview

Here you will find the ruins of the medieval cathedral and the bishop's residence from the 13th Century on the beautiful Museum grounds on the outskirts of Hamar. The museum is comprised of archaeological exhibitions, a botanical garden and an outdoor museum with about 60 buildings from around Hedemarken County. The cathedral ruins are protected by a much-discussed protective structure in glass and steel, called the Hamar Dome, which is an attraction in itself. Open every day in summer season. Groups all year when booked in forehand.

Thank you for visiting, and for leaving those kind and useful words here! When it comes to indoor temperatures, is this one of the reasons why our museum is not ordinarily open during winter season.

The ruins of the cathedral are preserved in a glass "dome" that recreates the original building. The accompanying museum is on the site of the fortress ruins. It has articles from both Viking times and the Middle ages and really shows what life was like...More

Thank you for visiting, even thought our museum is closed during winter season, our beautiful museum park is open free of admission all year. Welcome back some other time!

The place is a worth going as a day trip from Oslo. I would just say if you want to go in the winter time, just call or email them. You might not be able to get in.
