Closes at 4PM. Staff are helpful. Very big hall. You can roam upstairs to see more displays of rooms used for court trial and other Norwegian government history.

This building is where the Nobel Peace Prize is presented. The rooms in the building are magnificent. Norway marble for the floors. Magnificent woodwork. Paintings galore, and tapestries hanging on the walls. A magnificent setting for the presentation of the prize.

Such a wonderful building with so many giant wall paintings of events, both mythical and real. A stunning bell tower that play tunes every hour with over 100 bells. Magical sound.

This is quite an ordinary looking building from the outside but once Inside there is plenty to see. We had an excellent guide who gave us a wonderful insight into the building and its place in the history of Oslo including the Nobel peace Prize.

Although an impressively sized structure outside, my expectations were lowered due to the slightly drab 1950s brick work. I was pleasantly surprised though to find some amazing murals and decor inside with some spectacular rooms. Would have been nice to get inside one of the towers!

Nothing special about the building which resembles pretty much every City Hall in every city... However it is nice to know that all the major boat tours depart close to it.
