  • The Museum is situated in Frognerparke (Vigeland Park). The exposition is situated on two levels, the lower is devoted to the history of Oslo. Many exhibits of ancient life, there is an interesting installation, which can be clearly seen as the city grew from century to century. Part of the exhibits telling about prominent people of the time, mayors and city leaders. On the second floor of the more modern Exposition-theatrical life, dialects of the city, apartments in 50-60-70-80 years of the last century and more. A lot of multimedia exhibits. While admission is free.

  • Interesting exhibition about the history of Oslo, with English descriptions and not too long. On the upper floor there's a great exhibition about Norwegian and other languages in Norway. The only draw...  more »
  • Small museum that is not so far from the park and is semi-interesting. We were there when it was sunny and loved the inner garden they had. Nice place to take a break at, even if the café did not feel...  more »

  • There are only a few attractions in Oslo you're able to visit for free. The city museum is one of them and if you're interested in the history of the town of Olso I'd recommend a visit here. The exhibiton offers a lot of factual information and historic exhibits. It's easy to spend hours if you read background information and watch the movies. In case of a rainy day it's a great location to go to.
  • A must see museum for those who enjoy city photography! Plus, it's free of charge! :)
  • Free entrance and small and cosy place for all the tourists.
  • When I arrived I was immediately greeted by the staff. I also tried the shrimp sandwich which was quite good. After that me and the rest of my class Said hello to our tour polite guide before we started. The tour in itself was full of helpful and insightful information, the guide was also really good at explaining all the different building setups and etc. Overall the tour was a great learning experience for me and for the rest of my class. The tour guide deffinently knew what she was talking about, she also didn't go to into depth right away, which was something that I found to be well thought out. The only critic I have about this place has to be that I thought she treated us a little tiny bit like little kids. Except that, the tour and the experience itself was quite insightful and interesting. This Is deffinently a place to recommend if you want a good idea of Oslo as a city, and how it has developed in the last 100 years.
  • The video/slide show of the origins of the city of Oslo and Christianborg is interesting.
