We live just around the corner, and come here at least twice a month with our two small kids. Great exhibition with planes, trains and automobiles, and four floors of activities to explore. The gift shop has many great items, and the cafeteria is decent. Highlight of the year is the month-long Lego festival every October.

Lots of interesting things, not only to see but doo! Went there with 3 kids from 9-12 years, and they loved it! A perfect variation on a day with lousy weather.

This museum offers a plethora of different activities and Exhibitions engaging both adults and children. My Family have no problems with spending half a day at this museum, usually combined With a snack in the cafeteria and a following walk along the beautiful Akerselva (the Aker river).

Really a great place to learn about technology and science, accessible to the most stupid of us (hello, my american friends), although most texts are in Norwegian :( The highlight of the museum is the music section, with 'studios' where you can jam with your friends and many peculiar instruments!

Nice museum section which also is interesting for the adults, then an explorers section in the basement for the kids with interesting physical experiments. It is a very good rainy-day program in the area.

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
