Ringve houses Norway's National museum of music and musical instruments with collections from the whole world. The interiors from the 1880s in the Great House provides a backdrop for guided tours with musical demonstrations during the summer season, while the exhibition "The Museum in the Barn" is available throughout the year.

Ringve is situated only 10 minutes from Trondheim by car, and is one of the old country seats on the historical Lade peninsula with buildings from the 1700s, 1800s and the 1900s.

The Ringve Estate was the childhood home of "Tordenskiold", a famous Norwegian naval hero. Today the Ringve Botanical Gardens, NTNU surrounds the Estate and the old English garden from the 1800s is included here.

The café "Tordenskiold Kro" and the popular Museumshop at Ringve are only two of the many attractions which make Ringve one of Trondheim's most important recreation areas.

Great museum only minutes from Trondheim Centre. Jun 26, 1997
This is Norway's national museum of music and musical instruments, set if fine botanical gardens only a few minutes by bus or car from the city centre of Trondheim.(Ask where to get the bus back before you leave as it is not the same at al ties of day.

Their website, http://www.ringve.com/English/, is highly informative. be sure to click on 'our collections' as well as the stuff about hours and tickets.

I gather that the exhibits in the barn ie different from when I was there so I won't say anything about that. i had to wait a long time to get a guided tour in English of the manor house but it was worth every second. The guide will play a number of old keyboard instruments as he takes you around the period rooms. he wil also tell you about the museum's history and may give broad hints about the methods used by the woman of the couple who started the collection to persuade males to give their old instruments to the museum.
