  • It is located at the edge of the Vigeland Park Oslo City Museum. To Oslo Norway's society spot, and features an exhibition about the history of life. Photos around town and people of Oslo in the early 20th century, home and living history every room I think was interesting and reproduce. But it's a little bit disappointing didn't know little English commentary, reproduced in text and video of last exhibition area. (Metro "Majorstuen" station, 15 min. walk. Or tram 12 numbers: Vigalandsparken station, 3 min. walk)

  • Reproduction of very concentrated on popular history of Oslo. Early in an exhibition of costumes and noble dynasties of Oslo, then advance in more recent times vintage look like posters of shows that have made history and reproductions of life styles of the time. We didn't enjoy it fully, but at least admission is free.

  • 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.
  • Free Museum but with many texts only in Norwegian. Two-hour visit.
