I feel like this museum is more suited to architecture students and those who have a keen interest in architecture; I found the exhibits quite dry, with very dense with technical information.
If you visit the National Gallery of Oslo you are able to enter...More
cool building. The current exhibit about the UN Security Council chamber is very informative. But I think the star of the show is the exhibit about urban housing options. I was quite impressed by that one. Only wish it was bigger

There are also models and...More
Worth seeing both for the building and for the exhibitions.
The Museum of architecture in Oslo is located in an elegant neoclassical building near the harbour designed by Christian Heinrich Grosch and completed in 1830. It was adapted and extended by Sverre Fehn before opening...More
