  • Whatever you're interested in you'll find it here. Old trains, computer games and planes. A must see, take your kids on a rainy day. 
  • Very interesting and varied exhibitions. Also invites the Museum to interact. Temporary exhibition "Game ON" was very interesting and you could see the development of the video game industry. In addition, many video games invited EXTREME to be played. Duration of stay: approx. 2 hours

  • The Museum is not really so very wide, but there are many sections where you can try out different things, like music, sit in old trains, play with light, gravitation, etc. We were two families who were there for a couple of hours and it was hard to persuade children that it was time to go. There is also a cafe and a small job shop in the Museum. Recommended. easy to get there by bus or train from Oslo (c) where the Museum is located directly next to the station.

  • 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!
