Ytterøy Open Air museum

Jørstadsjøen Dampskibskai is unique as the current steamship pier in Trondheim Fjord. Kaia was built in 1930 and was a landing stage for the scheduled boats that plied the fjord. Kaia is one of the best preserved steamship/rowboat wharves in the Trondheim Fjord.

Kaia is open to all visitors. Posters with information about the history of the kaia have been put up. Equipment that was in use at this quay has been returned and restored. The main focus is on dissemination through poster information.
I tillegg til å ta imotige caseldige besøkende, kan hele anlegget eller deler av anlegget renties ut til event.
