Large museum with loads of interesting and interactive areas. Unfortunately, not much is also in English so if like us, don't speak Norwegian, you won't really learn anything new. Saying that, the kids had a great time in the science section. The transportation floor is really well done.

Interesting both for kids and adults. At the moment (until september 2014) there's a good photo exhibition about dying (sounds macabre, but actually isn't).

The upper floors contain displays of things in history. We actually saw a portable CD player that both my husband and I once owned!
