  • Fun for the kids. ... But a little boring when one has been there, and 8.9 10ganger the same things still there. ... year in and year out... What with something new soon? A little bummed that the price was set so up recently. Otherwise an ok place to take the kids. Informative and interesting.

  • 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!
