  • It's a good little museum of animals native to Oslo, do a lot of animals I've never seen before. Great for children but nothing particularly special. I went because it was near the munch museum and it...  more »
  • This museum is great for what it is! And it doesn't attempt to be what it's not! It's not the London Natural History museum, or the Houston NHM or the Wien NHM or....you get the idea. But it DOES show...  more »
  • I have been to many Natural History Museums around the world, I was expecting so much more than what I got. I still enjoyed my my time here with the T-Rex, but I was really hoping for more. I hope you...  more »

  • Natural History museum, just opposite to the Munch museum is a good place to spend a couple of hours in Oslo. It has many pre historical structures of animals, calcites and many other amazing stones.
  • Sugn a nice botanical garden, and the zoological museum is well worth a look. I'm biased as I work here, but I loved it even before that. The botanical garden around the museum is at it's best during spring, summer and fall, but it's still worth a look during winter. There are two open houses; the Victoria house and the palm house. When you enter the Victoria house, which is free, you immediately enter a tiny tropical paradise. The first thing to catch your eye is a small pond with fish and a Victoria water-lily. In the palm house you can walk through the evolution of plants from small ferns to the large seed plants. In the actual museum, which is the only part of the entire garden that's not free, you can see lots of geological, paleontological and zoological material. Rocks, fossils and animals are placed throughout the museum. If you have children there's definitely gonna be something to talk about, but be aware, some children find the replica of the T.rex fossil a bit intimidating.
  • Very impressive with quite a few fossils and lots of stuffed animals. Half of the text in the museum is only in Norwegian though.
