Living in Oslo, we have visited Teknisk Museet several times - when our son was 3, 5, 9. Everytime there is something new and expanding. Latest we were there for the GameOn classic gaming expo. Aside from that, one will find trains, planes, oil rigs, lots of things kids (and adults) can touch and make work. Its a pleasant way... More

This was the highlight of our trip to Oslo for our 4 year old and 7 year old. They had a great time playing with the science exhibits on the bottom floor. They were not that interested in the exhibits on the first or second floors (transportation, including many classic cars and an old airplane, plus many more things I... More

I am not a big fan of Games, but my partner is. We went to the museum and we enjoyed SO much! The Museum is huge: the part of the games where you can find machines only available in Japan or all the Lara Croft games, to the part of old cars and transport retrospective, passing through the technology/science part!...

The museum is full of interactive games, demonstrations, models and explanations, many of which are written/recorded in Norwegian only. It covers a lot of different subjects- from electricity to biology, anatomy, computers, aircraft etc. I was a little bored, since I expected something of a different concept, but I believe that for the the kids it should be wonderful.

Be ready to run around for a good two hours. There is do much to see and interact for the kids. Food at the cafeteria nothing special. Only complain is that during holiday season opens later than when kids are in school.

I've been going here frequently since I was little. We'd often go on school trips here, and I often bring my nephews here, and I'm still not sure if I do it for them or for me, because I absolutely love this museum. Upstairs you have different exhibitions such as old cars and phones, and downstairs you have an interactive... More

A popular museum, but compared to other science museums in Europe, It has a long way to go. Now on display though is an exhibition titled Game On that could be worth the money if you want to go back to your childhood arcade and video gaming fun. My kids forgot about Pokemon Go for a while and engaged in... More

More expensive than most museums in Oslo, but free with oslo pass. Far enough from city centre, but we got a tram which drops you to within a 3/4 minute walk of the museum. Its definitely worth checking out if you have a few hours free in Oslo.
