  • Visited the Pop Center with family. Great travel in Norwegian pop music and music history. Start with introfilmen, and take the round trip. Use the time in the time machine, and experience the history of the Norwegian music in different eras. Record your own song, mix it yourself and create a cover. Great family experience. Remember that this is about Norwegian music. Not particularly suitable for foreign tourists without Norwegian knowledge.

  • I really wanted to go to this place because I wanted to learn about Norwegian pop culture. I got there at 11:07, not knowing the only English tour for the day was at 11. My fault. I was fine with it b...  more »
  • The pop Sente ret is a medium-sized Museum with very entertaining exhibits. It begins with a history of Norwegian pop music culture, followed by various interactive stations. The description is mostly in Norwegian, with a few basic skills to get but very good size :) The highlight is recording a songs including an appropriate mix and a cover photo with different props, because we have entertained us beautifully! The way itself is also great to test instruments and visit the space, which turns into a living room of appropriate music decade with push of a button. The Museum Shop has prepared some appropriate articles, the service was very friendly. For music lovers, I can only recommend the Museum most definitely!

  • An amazing view of pop through the ages. Best pop museum I have been into. The site is wheelchair friendly.
  • IT is interesting "museum" with pop musik subject. Full og color, music instruments etc. Aktive exponats as well.
  • Interesting to see if you have the Oslo card, otherwise probably not such a good choice. It is a good museum but the focus is on Norwegian music, so apart from Aha and Dimmu Borgir, I did not know much more.
  • If you are into Norwegian popular music, this museum/activity center is the place to visit in Oslo (although Rockheim in Trondheim is arguably better). Centrally located in the popular Grünerløkka district, Popsenteret takes you on a tour a century of pop music with exhibitions of instruments, posters and of course music and video clips. There are activity rooms where kids for can mix their own track and create CD covers, for instance, and on weekends there are familiy-oriented activities such as "build your own instrument".
  • Great museum, with lots of interesting and interactive features.

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.
