Been here a few times. The museum and workshops are nice but it'd be even better if they had more things to see and play with.

Vitenfabrikken is a fantastic place to be joining together with children. Both children and grown ups have something to learn, and it is learning in a funny way.

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.
