  • Paid £10 per person it’s a very small museum, with not much in. Very basic not much of Norwegian history  more »
  • Nice museum. Has free lockers for coats and things. Not a lot to see. A Viking section, native, and when I was there a Egyptian section. Nice gift store located on site. If you’re already in that.....  more »
  • Great museum, but closed at the moment. Will open when the new ugly place is erected, sometime next year. Hopefully the inside will look better than the outside.  more »
