  • The museum is very interesting and offers plenty of science areas to all ages. Unfortunatelly, all the information is in Norwegian and only some areas offer information in English.  more »

  • Great place for both adults and kids! Many interesting facts about stuff that also is connected with the history of Norway. Really recommend it, and the gift shop is a plus 😊
  • Pros: Super place for adults and children. Lots of interesting stuff and greatly displayed. Going back for sure! Con: Lot of the displayed items does not have English translation to the displayed information, which is in Norwegian.
  • Nice place to visit when you have some time. Tons of interesting stuff, however mostly for children, and Saturdays there are so many of them, that you might get tired.
  • My advice - go to this museum as soon as it opens because you will need as much time as you can spend there, because it is huge and VERY interesting. Not only expositions, but also interactive games and experiments, which will extend your knowledge starting from engineering, history, medicine to transportation and space. Kids were so happy there, parents a bit exhausted though :)
  • My daughter loved to play here. It was so interesting even for adults to see and learn how to save energy and what to do if we are lack of electricity. They teach it so simple for the kids to understand. Also the music machines were fun and it was lovely to learn history of music devices.
