There is plenty to see and do. It is a nice interactive museum, so don't be surprised if you loose your kids. There are multiple levels, collections, and activities. The kids can be kids and learn something in the process.

If there is nothing to do and it's rainy, this is the perfect place for you. I enjoyed the bit about telephones but the best was the activity centre in the basement. It explained things to me about science, technology and the environment through fun activities and games.

You can spend a whole day here and not run out of things to see or do. It's big. It shows the history of technology through a huge collection, including loads of buttons to press and little games / scientific challenges. With 2 adults and 2 kids under 10, we all had a ball.

If you have kids and it is raining in Oslo, this is one of the "must" do things. The museum is huge so be prepared to spend at least 3 hours there. My two boys enjoyed a lot the basement area, where they can touch and play. The people working there were very helpful. I can just recommend the museum.

This one is a cracker of a science museum. You see a lot of the usual things like the developments of the industrial revolution, demonstrations of all sorts of scientific principles and information about famous scientists but we liked best the section about oil and gas. They have samples of oil from different fields and you can see how they... More

Great museum. Showcases both old technology and modern science. A lot of hands-on stuff to do, so great for a rainy day out with the kids.
