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.

The collection has great variety, there's an unusual collection of cars, planes and other vehicles. In addition, there's a great range to the collection, everything from medicine, to clocks, to the oil industry. Great for adults and plenty for kids too.

I live in the area and remember visiting this museum several times when I was younger. I returned this weekend, and not much has changed. The historical party of the museum is basically the same as it was many years ago. I wish they would add the more high tech stuff.

The museum is a bit further away from the city than other oslo museums, however it is easy to reach by public transit. Most of the displays are designed for younger ages but nonetheless they are interesting. Children of all ages are going to have fun while learning and experimenting. A lot of the displays didnt have an english explanation... More

It is not one of the most popular attractions in Oslo but its definitely a hidden gem. The collection this museum houses is excellent. Starting from the first SAS jet (yes they actually have the whole jet plane inside the museum) to first car used by teh prime minister, Old locomotives, planes, cars it is a great place to go....

If you like technology, even a little bit, you will like this place. The basement is the best part :)

This museum is a must if you have kids. It includes games and interactive stuff that both entertain and teach at the same time! Popular among kindergardens, it's quite hard to find. You have to take a tram or bus to Kjelsas Station, north of the city centre. It's quite big, it is merged with the telecom museum and you... More

A little bit out of Oslo but we just hopped onto bus 54 and it drops you at Kjelsas station, which is right next door to the museum. Good selection of exhibits but the best by far are the interactive sections that kids love and we spent most of our time in these trying each of them out. These were... More

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
