This building has become an icon of Oslo. Good architecture, well thought out planning. Gets crowded on weekends and holidays. The roof and lobby are open 24/7 as a public space/park. A tour of the building is also available through advanced reservation and discount is available with Oslo card. Check the calendar prior visit for available performances and free events.

We actually didn't venture into the Opera house but had a great view of the outside during the Oslo Fjord tour. Not even sure the Opera has any shows since its winter time and cold (with little visitors around). Hope to check it out when we do come back and visit during warmer months next time.

Amazing architecture where you can walk on the roof, also lie under the sun with a nice view or have a picnic there. White marble, wood inside. With different things to do and enjoy. A must see in Oslo.

A walk round the opera house is deffo a requirement for any visit to Oslo, at sunset makes for some amazing views definitely worth doing, suitable for all.

Wow - breathtaking architectural gem. A credit to the designers- amazing inside and outside. You can walk on the roof too! I wish the Scottish Parliament had been designed by such creative designers, we could have gotten a masterpiece of design genius. Just a brilliant building. Amazing from every angle.

Only visited the outside, have heard that the rooftop is a must visit and I don't doubt it. Nice and broad view of the city. The claim up is a bit steep and it was slippery during our visit today (Dec 2nd).

A beautiful building (if you like modem) that sits well in its space. The rooftop walk (free access) is a great way to look at the interesting structural spaces and, of course, to see the view over the fjord. Inside, the use of wood, contrasting with the other hard surfaces, is stunning in its style and (I imagine) the cultural... More

Well worth a visit to the top of the opera house, great view of the harbour and surrounding city/land scape. Quick and easy tourist destination that you can tick off your list.

We only saw the outside of the Opera, but it was worth it. The architecture was amazing, the view of Oslo from the top was sublime, and the location is very nice. There is a tour of the interior that we did not do, but it would have been easy (1250 or so) if we had the time.
