  • The lady in the reception was very good in informing us how the museum was organised and the closing time for the museum, but the museum itself was not that impressive. The museum is also very small.  more »
  • Nice building in the old town hall. Reasonable children's section with a part exhibited stuff. The rest is a little sparse and inconsistent.

  • The museum is very small and not worth the entry price in my opinion. If it was a free museum I would recommend as somewhere to go to get a taste of women's history quickly but since you have to pay I...  more »

  • Looking forward to the new exhibitions. Charming cafe.
  • Great little place for women (and men) to visit to get a look into womens lives.. the museum discusses different problematic questions for and from women
  • This place is a total rip off!! A whole floor practically empty and another floor with different stories of women with just pages (A4 size) hanging from the ceiling with all the information. The props used in this floor are bland and fail to enhance the experience. You can go through the whole "museum" in 20 min. tops. It is a real shame that the concept of a museum about women gets ruined by such a poor and lazy attempt. There is a lot to say about the progress and struggles of women throughout the years and there is so much information our there, but this place just shows a glimpse of it and it is displayed in a way that it is not particularly friendly for the visitor, in some parts it almost appears that no thought was put into the design in terms of user experience. For comparison, the Viking museum across the street is free and has more content, and the Dem Gamle By costs the same and there is enough content there for at least 3 to 4 hours (If not more) Unless the place undergoes a radical change they should stop charging an entrance fee or they should just close the museum until they get their act together.
