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.

  • I'm sure I would have enjoyed this museum--it's collections are extensive. But--with so few English translations, it was hard to make sense of what I was seeing. Didn't stay long.  more »
  • The museum isn't that large, but they've managed to stuff the museum with interesting exhibitions of flora, fauna, gemstone and fossils. When you enter, you're immediately greeted by a large Tyrannosa...  more »
  • If you're used to larger Natural History Museums (like London) then perhaps this one isn't for you. It's very small and the majority of the items on show are taxidermy animals, some of which look very...  more »

  • 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.
  • Intersting, but small museum centrally located in Oslo
  • T-rex skeleton, mineral displays, lots of interactive and entertaining displays for the kids.
