About
The Norwegian Children's Museum is one of a handful of its kind in Europe. Our exhibitions and activities are about almost anything connected with children and childhood. A children's museum combines the traditional museum's focus on documentation and the exhibition of objects from the past with the young person's wish to participate, investigate and play. A children's museum also evokes nostalgia and the recollection of one's own childhood. You will walk through the maze of growing up in a museum world of exhibitions, activities and theatre. Exhibitions and activities. Toys, a tree hut, labyrinths, board games and play. Open daily in school holidays.

Possibly the best children's museum I've been to. It has a real. Mix of things from natural history to a play are awoth Lego and a castle to runaround. It's ocean for younger children with a nice cafe and its free! There is loads for the little ones to interact with, dolls houses, coal shoveling and cars. We've been here 3 hours and can't get our child out of here.

It is a tiny museum but has many interesting things to see. Our family-favorite item was the rubber-duck-piano. Very funny!
On the other levels of the museum, you can find a natural-history exhibition, an exhibition about childbirth and a pretty scary exhibition about nightmare fantasy creatures.
I have to mention the museum's buffet, where you can stand in line for waffles and the most amazing bagel I have ever tasted.
The museum's park is free to use and there are many traditional outdoor children's games available and visitors can see a real whale-skeleton as well.
All in all we had a great 1-2 hours with the kids, while it was raining outside.

Well planned and good displays yes, kids loved to be there, outdoor retro games a bonus. Can be recommended to anyone - even without children that would like to go travel back into childhood adventures again.

We spent hours here. So many play possibilities and we learned along the way also something. The children didn’t want to leave anymore! The coffe corner was also very nice. The people working at the museum were really friendly. They invited us for a play which took place in a kind of theatre

It is very nice place to spend an hour with small children. Bigger kids also could find interesting videos, read or listen stories. Unfortunately everything is in Norwegian.

The teens were fascinated with all the oldies, and me by the resuscitation corner. Great that kids are taught BLS also in Norway.

Very good place to spend a couple of hours reminiscing or comparing children's culture and playthings. Took my grandchildren here and they loved it.

This is perfect for a rainy day in Stavanger with your children. It´s open 10 pm to 4 am every day, except from Mondays, when it´s closed. It´s cheap entrance (90 NOK for adults and 70 NOK from 3 to 18 years, 0-3 is free).

You can enjoy several floors of fun. It´s not about watching toys, it´s just as much trying them. There are also own rooms for playing in a castle or dressing up in fun costumes. This is perfect for children 2 to 8 years.

We spent 3 or 4 hours here. Well worth our time, because this is something else.

A nice place for kids. It has been rearranged bot long ago and some exhibitions have been changed. For example, the area with stuffed animals is smaller and shows less animals. Also, miss that homemade ice cream they had in their cafeteria :)

When I have seen it's name I wasn't sure what it could be about, but I had a really good time there. My favorite was the super huge doll in the middle of the room
