  • Fantastic little museum is free with lots of nooks with great information. Well worth visiting This museum is wheelchair friendly the approaching walk ways are clear and would be easy navigated. The coffee shop is delightful with a good range of foods and treats at reasonable prices.
  • Tells the history of Oslo in detail, also exhibits the study of language, suitable for children. The only suggestion would be English explanation in each part of the museum so all visitor could enjoy the tour:)
  • Interesting place to gain some more knowledge. There is caffè inside, shop and some outdoor activities for kids. Exhibition isn't huge, but interesting, and free to see.
  • Love this place! We come here often
  • Lots of new things to see..

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.
