  • Very much informative but also fascinating for people of all ages. It's very much interactive and that shows different aspects of science.

  • Have been here several times with the kids, and one can quickly kill a few hours in here. aktiviterter for both the brain and body, but it's the shows that are gøyest. Be sure to check so that you get with them, and get you a ticket early-they are quickly taken. After a few hours you have been joined by the most part which is nice.

  • Fun museum, but should try to to be more interactive and add new activities.
  • One of the best science museums I have visited. Huge selection of topics and great interactive displays. Kids can do so much here from knitting a giant sock to playing with a crane.
  • Fun and learning for kids of all ages with plenty of interactive installations, planetarium and some fun theme shows. Well stocked museum shop with lots of gadgets and experiments for the kids.
  • Good fun all around :-)
  • Vitenfabrikken gjør vitenskap til lek!
