Top attraction if you look for something to do, especially at a rainy day. The basement houses lots of small science tests such as generating your own Maelstrom, bodey heat imaging, talking through tubes and a view on the milky way. The first floor displays typical norwegian industry evolution, and the top floor displays a collection of planes(!) cars and... More

Here is fun and instructive to be for both children and adults. Especially a lot of fun in the basement. Calculate 2-3 hours for you to have with you most.

My son loves this museum especially the experiment part and old airplanes part. It is a great place for learning about the development of different technologies. Don't miss the history of medicine, this is also quite amazing.

Highly recommended - you can learn many interesting information about how oil and gas are extracted, what the history of musical instrument is and many many more. Two hours can be spent there well

- Very good place for children - young and older. - Some exhibits didn't work and for that money they should have been fixed. I visited the museum several times and this situation seems permanent. - Opening hours are to 4pm during working days which makes it not available for many. - Parking place is too small. During weekend visitors... More

This is truly a museum for everyone: the science buff, the museum lover, kids of all ages and people who like to walk a lot indoors. A total of 3 levels of exhibitions (4 levels in all, but the entrance level is mainly the gift shop and cafe), many of which are very interesting and educational. The bottom floor has... More

After having had an excellent time at The Science and Maritime House in Malmo (Sweden) earlier this year, we decided to take the long trip to this museum, expecting it to be better (since it`s in Oslo, a bigger city). We were extremely disappointed! It is smaller than the museum in Malmo, there are a lot less interactive exhibitions, and... More
