Beautiful architecture, beautiful place, great atmosphere especially during summer days. However, the building operators were surprised by the public interest when it was opened so it turned out to be a well-known spot to visit by chance. The place can perhaps be developed into having...More

Go on a guided tour if you haven't got tickets for a performance. The inside is stunning, and they take you backstage and through the "Factory" where they make most of the scenery, costumes, props etc. Very interesting. Such talent

It's a great example of modern architecture.The sloping roof on which visitors are allowed to walk up, is a unique experience. It offers a great view of the bay and surrounding. The atrium with wooden spiral walkway is another architectural marvel

That's what it looks like when you first see it - like kids should be riding skateboards down the slopes! You can walk up and down the slopes and steps on the exterior of the building and take in the different views it has to...More

This is an amazing piece of architecture and a must visit in Oslo. The glass and white stone glistens in the sunlight against the water. It truly is reminiscent of a glacier by the fjord. The roof is definitely worth the the climb as the...More

As I read, many comments said the view from the rooftop is beautiful. My question is; are we free to go up there or do we have to had an opera ticket? Thank you.

No it is free, the building is built in such a way that you can access the roof from the outside! It is broad, and safe, but in the winter it does get a bit slippery! Enjoy the view. Helen

We plan to see the Cinderella Ballet in June. We have two adults, plus a 22-year old college student and an 18-year old high school student, both going to school in the USA. Are they eligible for the "student" prices as both have student identification.
