You can spend a whole day here and not run out of things to see or do. It's big. It shows the history of technology through a huge collection, including loads of buttons to press and little games / scientific challenges. With 2 adults and 2 kids under 10, we all had a ball.

If you have kids and it is raining in Oslo, this is one of the "must" do things. The museum is huge so be prepared to spend at least 3 hours there. My two boys enjoyed a lot the basement area, where they can touch and play. The people working there were very helpful. I can just recommend the museum.

This one is a cracker of a science museum. You see a lot of the usual things like the developments of the industrial revolution, demonstrations of all sorts of scientific principles and information about famous scientists but we liked best the section about oil and gas. They have samples of oil from different fields and you can see how they... More

Great museum. Showcases both old technology and modern science. A lot of hands-on stuff to do, so great for a rainy day out with the kids.

Most people who live in Oslo have been here, and it is worth your time. Creative exhibitions and there is a lot to learn. It is far from Oslo centrum, but you can take the bus or tram. It will probably take a more than 15 minutes to get there. But again, it is worth it:)

This was an excellent day out. We got there for 10:00AM as indicated by our guide to Oslo, only to find ourselves locked outside, in the rain, with several other families. Apparently during the summer holidays it opens at 11. Thankfully, a most eloquent lady pleaded our case through the intercom and they let us in to browse the shop... More
