The Medieval Exhibition

The courtyard of the bishop’s residence was excavated between 1947 and 1989. These ruins are an important part of the medieval exhibition made by architect Sverre Fehn in the barn of the farm Storhamar.

  • A concrete ramp is crossing through the entire museum making sure the medieval ruins are not worn down from people walking, and fragments of medieval canons are on display on one of the walls.

Here you can walk on 16th century cobblestones and enter the bishop's many cellars. You can get an overview of the excavation area from the large ramps which the architect boldly has stretched over the entire area. Inside you will find the exhibition of some of the key findings from the bishop’s residence and Hamarkaupangen presented in small rooms. Here is also a model of the medieval town Hamarkaupangen.
