    The price is really not a deterrent and the attractions are very accessible children. Here they can experience and learn about animals in different faunaer all over the world. Something wiped out and some of it we can experience today. Very nice visit

    Nice museum mostly animals. Somethings don't have English translations but Norwegian is close to English so sometimes you can the words. There is beautiful trees on the way there.  more »

    We, two adults and four children with mixed motivation to spend time at the museum, went anyway for natural history in fine weather. Great exhibition, with fine mount was both interesting and delicious. A little more interactivity had probably been desirable for children aged 7-14, but all seems that the Museum was interesting, stylish and nicely.

    The first room is nice, but there nothing else that much thrilling unless you enjoy mockups, which are nicelly done but not what I would expect from a Natural museum.

    I had a day long layover in Oslo, and my host recommended I should make a visit. Despite it being in the dead of winter, the frosted trees and pathways gave the area outside the museum the right amount of melancholy and winter wonderland. It's a little dated, but it's a peaceful stroll in a convenient location.

    A nice selection of fossils, some dinosaurs, gems and so on, rather small, the upperfloor is kinda of funny with some real and some fake stuffed animals, really afordable only 250 Norwegian Krone, and afterwards you can relax in the botanical garden, it is really close to the Munch museum, you can easily do both in one day.

    T-rex skeleton, mineral displays, lots of interactive and entertaining displays for the kids.

Where to stay in Oslo

A majority of Oslo's hotels and smaller accommodations cluster along Karl Johans Gate, the city's main drag connecting many of its downtown attractions. If you want something a bit more colorful than the average hotel, consider one of the many bed and breakfasts that have been cropping up in recent years. To escape the crowded streets, but still be walking distance from major sights, stay in the Frogner or Majorstuen neighborhoods near the royal palace. As you can probably guess, lodging is quite expensive in this European capital.
