  • The Museum is very worthwhile and shows many historical developments and technical operations with a variety of contemporary exhibits of musical instruments on the extraction of oil and medicine in a vivid way to power vehicles. Texts and explanations of the exhibits are written both in Norwegian and English. An area for experimentation to join completes the Museum. It is located outside on the outskirts, is to reach but well with public transport and is located right next to a metro station.

  • It was a really lovely day. We had our boy with us. He is 2 years and it was like we couldn't see it all because he loved it all. Take your kids and have fun with the hole family  more »

  • Lots of interesting things to see, recommend a full day, or a second visit. Half a floor full of hands-on scientific experiments and displays/games, suitable for children, but also fun for adults.
  • This is probably one of the most exciting places in the Oslo area, both for kids and for adults. Here you can learn a bunch of stuff about technical things as electricity, mechanics, chemistry and so on. They have an admission price which could be a bit lower for adults, but in general it's ok. From time to time, they change the exhibition which lasts for at least a few weeks. I would absolutly recommend this place!
  • The "Game On" section is very neat. Worth a visit
  • The musem is huge and really amazing. I found many interesting exibitions there from science to medicine. I really enjoyed the planetarium, it was great! I removed one point because not everything was translated. If you want fully exeprience what museum Jaś to offer I suggest the tour guide in english. But aside from that I enjoyed my time there😄
  • The Game On 2.0 exhibition is amazing. It was not too busy during the morning and enough games for everyone to enjoy. Certainly worth a visit!
