  • Nice place to go. We walked from the habour. Took about 1,5-2 hours, looking at shops and the royal castle on the way. The exhibition is free and consists of photos, videos, paintings, models etc. Gre...  more »
  • Bymuseets shop about the language in the elderly gave samples of general research and foredragholdernes own research in the area. Since the talk was supposed to be for most people, I had enough expected something more focus on what the elderly themselves can do in everyday life to expose the linguistic maturity, where this is possible. Language lounge is a great measures and should be continued.

  • The Museum is located in the old historic building in Frognerparke. There is also a café, a souvenir shop. Entrance to the Museum is free. On two floors of exhibits telling the story of Oslo. On the lower level the more ancient part of history-the appearance of the city, its growth. The second is closer to our time-19-20 century. Interesting time.

  • 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.
