We (12 year old and adult) had a great English language tour at the Nationalteater! Our staff manager guide (the lovely Johanna) was knowledgeable and thoughtful. It is a building with a fascinating history, reflecting Norway’s own history and the contemporary challenges facing theatres across Europe today.

A fantastic building that features statues of Ibsen and Bjornson. The top two playwrights in Norway history. A fun building to explore and a great park nearby for relaxing and taking in all of the activity around the theater. If you time it right, you may get to see some live performances. Either way, you get to enjoy this great historical building.

Beautiful architectural neoclassical design. Very historic. At the end of Karl Johann gate. Now in winter it is fronting the Christmas markets . Don’t miss a photo op at this one.

I noted that its location is always busy with the buses, trams, and metro having their stops here. It is located near the City Hall or Radhaus and the Royal Palace.

Infront of this attraction is a huge statue of a famous Norwegian. There are also other sculptures around it. Benches are available for one’s use. Took several pictures of its exteriors and sculptures.

I’d love to see a show here before I leave Oslo.

No more no less than a theater like many in Europe and not as beautiful as some of them but interesting to see.

One of the few really nice buildings in central Oslo, home of the most prestigious theatre in Norway perhaps. If you're an Ibsen buff and understand Norwegian, make sure to drop by and check if any of his plays are on.

As a foreign tourist, I obviously didn't go to a play. I only saw the building from the outside. It is old, beautiful, but not out of the ordinary. 10 minutes to see it from different angles and that's it.

Oslo's National Theatre was inaugurated in 1899. It is centrally located between the Royal Palace and the Parliament of Norway. The building is Norway's most prominent venue for the performance of dramatic arts.

Statues of the great Norwegian writers Henrik Ibsen and Bjørnstjerne Bjørnson guard the theater's main entrance. They also have their names engraved on the theater's facade, along with the playwright Ludvig Holberg.

It's a Norwegian Cultural Heritage Site...first performance was in September 1899 so it's been around for a while. Lots of interesting sights to see in the vicinity.

The National Theater is one of the various neo-classical buildings in central Oslo, along the Karl Johann gate. Following the great tradition of Ibsen, one of Norway's best known writers, the theater, opened around 1899, schedules performances all year around. The facade faces a popular square with a beautiful fountain reminiscent of a giant dandelion, with a convenient subway station on one side. The back faces the Parliament (several blocks away) and includes three larger than life statues of Norway's three best authors. The theater is partially supported by the Norwegian governmets
