Make the most of your time on shore in Stavanger by getting back out onto the water on this guided boat tour. Sail into the Lysefjord to soak up the scenery of mountains, waterfalls, and tiny islands, and see such world-famous attractions as Pulpit Rock (Preikestolen). Also visit Vagabond's Cave, which legend says was named after a group of vagabonds who hid there; see goats at summer pasture, and taste clear mountain water from the Hengjane falls.

Really this could be so much more informative and interactive. A few areas were closed because of COVID-19 some were just out of order (broken). Information is laid out in a chaotic way and while there are some nice “models” it’s more a history timeline than the challenges of oil industry. If you don’t know anything about oil industry in Norway, you can waste 1hr or so here No reduction in price despite some things being sealed off and it’s clear the maintenance is not taken care of. Staff happy to take your money but look blankly at you when you mention things that don’t work! Could be so much more but has clearly not had an update in the last 10years.

Response from SiriV232, Guest Relations Manager at Norwegian Petroleum Museum

Hello EthicalEngineers I am sorry that you did not like our exhibitions. We do upgrade and open new exhibitions every year, even though you did find them outdated. We work hard not to have any parts of the exhibition out of order, so sorry that you visited us on a day where some things were broken. We have to close some parts due to Covid-19 and the safety of our visitors, but most of the exhibitions are open. Did you get to see the exhibition about Climate Change? That exhibition explains the impact the industry have on our climate. If you experienced that our staff did not meet your expectations, I am sorry about that. I hope to welcome you again to the museum some other time. Please refer to this post, and we will give you free entrance. Kind regards Siri Vinje

Worth spending few hours going round museum. Interactive exhibits and good for older children. Informative museum detailing history of oil industry in Norway and options for future.

Great museum about the Norwegian oil adventure. The Short movie was great to begin it all with and gave a nice background to it all. Spent about 3 hours looking at it all.

An interesting introduction into the story behind Norway’s oil adventure. Great exhibits that tell the story and showcase some of the incredible engineering feats made for extracting oil from the sea bed in the North Sea.
