Anno Domkirkeodden

Domkirkeodden – ”Cathedral Point” in English – is a fantastic museum of medieval culture and history. It lies in a beautiful location of the shore of Lake Mjøsa, Norway.

"Domkirkeodden is one of Norway's largest medieval museums providing an insight into our history from the Viking era, through the Middle Ages and up until today. The glass structure covering the cathedral ruins is the main attraction, and this is where visitors are told the dramatic story of how the church was destroyed. They also get to experience the fantastic acoustics as the guides show off their singing skills.

The open air museum by Mjøsa comprises over 60 antique buildings from the Hedmark villages. Permanent exhibitions are available in Storhamarlåven from the 1700s, converted to a museum by architect Sverre Fehn." (
