The day we went, the place was inundated with school children on a summer field trip. They were so fun to watch! And ALL the displays were well done. (well, not the medical one). But this place is the answer to the question, "How do things work?"

The interactive area of this museum is really fun for kids (and even teenagers). There are a lot of different things to do and activities to try. My teens got involved in the activities. They had visited the museum as young children, and it was fun for them to revisit a place they mostly remembered from pictures. Back then there... More

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.
