If you have kids and can't go out because of the weather, this is the perfect place to expend some family quality time! Full of interactive exposition, the kids can play and try a lot while they can learn basic principles of physics, biology, history and math!!! Lovely time! The only issue is if don't speak Norwegian, you may not... More

Everything is likable about this place. Much interactivity with different things around the museum. Also lots of interesting reads about Norwegian history. Especially from the Oil sector.

This is a perfect place to take the whole family - I know - it sounds boring - but it is a lot of fun - and you can even "check" on having visited a Museum on your visit to Oslo (if that is not your favorite activity) It has lots of activities and interesting things to do and it... More

Not on the beaten track but a great find and so much to see and do especially if you have children or grandchildren, a not to be missed place for a cold or wet day! This is one of the best touch and feel museums you can imagine.

Very popular with local families which must be a good sign. Lots of hands on activities for the children, reasonably priced (for Norway) café and lots of good displays for adults. We stayed for about 3 hours but could have spent longer as there was numerous bits we didn't see. Only downside is its a bit far out of town,... More

Very nice museum of technology. First thing what I saw was very big amount of wooden cubes. Great if you have children with you or you like to build towers :-) In museum are cars, airplanes even trains. You can find there elektronics, music and very interesting part of Oil mining. But prepare more then just a hour, maybe two.
