  • Great museum. I recommend the audioguide which goes straight to the point with useful information.
  • Interesting info about some of the things you need to now about Norway and Oslo, free admittance
  • 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! :)
  • A very nice museum
