Trondheim rocks the country / News / The Foreigner

Trondheim rocks the country. If you’ve never been to Trondheim, now’s the time to go. Norway’s new rock and pop museum is now open. Rockheim opened its doors to the public just two days ago. It’s 16 or so employees are responsible for collecting, preserving, and exhibiting Norwegian popular music from the 1950s to today. They’re also not shy about asking for help. If you happen to own anything to do with Norwegian popular culture, for example instruments, recordings, promo material, or sound equipment, they’d like to hear from you.
