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.

  • A fun and interesting museum, we were in Oslo for 5 days and this was something we originally weren't going to do but glad we did. If you get the chance, set aside some time and check it out :)  more »

  • Superb variety of aspects covered, with real models/replicas and interactive sections for those who like a more hands-on approach of learning! Very suitable for kids!
  • Enough to see for more than one day. I particularly enjoyed the full size jet plane. Make sure you go there one day when the guides will allow you to enter the plane.
  • Fun for children and adults. I don't recommend the cafeteria dinners. They have a fairly large selection of science themed toys and books. It's an excellent place to pick up a birthday present on a Sunday. You don't have to buy a ticket to access the store.
  • not the best of its kind i have been to but ok. a translation to english is only for a few sections aviable. not a must seen museum. we spent about 1.5 h to see all rooms.
  • Great and informative. You could spend the while day here!
