This museum has a lot of interesting things and gadgets displayed. Worth a visit. Location is a bit from the town center, but there are regular buses going here. Bus stop is merely 100 meters away from the museum.

Sent Therese for little break in a Thursday afternoon. Took the tram up there. Nice and easy to the end stop in kjelsas. Beautiful surroundings. A lot of people at this time in the museum. Great time inside, new and old history. Experience this.

This is one of my favorite museums in Oslo, if not Norway. It triggers the imagination, and has an impressive collection of artefacts from the history of technology of all types, including power, transportation, communication, and music. I went there with my daughter, age three, and we had a great time. She asked a LOT of questions, some of which... More

Hurrah! At last a museum where kids ( and adults!) are encouraged to touch and learn technology and science in an interesting and fun way. Cafe a bit boring, but the museum is great! Also a very good museum shop.

What makes this stand out is its historical aspect to all its displays and artifacts. The museum itself is huge and you will easily spend an entire day here, you can buy lunch and keep wondering thru after. Bus stop outside, easy to reach with public transport. Very hands on and kids of all ages will love it, even us... More

We went there with the kids! I haven't experienced anything like that nowhere in Europe! We were able to touch, feel, listen and be part of the artifacts of the museum! The kids loved it and really identify themselves with it!

One of the best museums I've seen in the last years. It's great, it's very interesting and interactive. Try seeing it during the week / try calling ahead to find out if there are any kid drips because you would enjoy it most when it's not full (and you can really have fun and even try out a lot of...
