“Fun hours of pushing buttons and pulling levers.”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

We didn't actually bring any children but there were loads running around and they seemed to enjoy themselves.There's stuff like building chairs without nails or glue, pulling a string to reveal a giant poop (the amount, on average, a person poops in a year), bush buttons to make stuff light up and the like, while the adults/older children can read the signs/posters (in english and norwegian). There are shows and various movies shown throughout it, and they have a café as well. Great for kids to maybe learn a thing or two, or science interested people.
