  • We ended up here almost at random, because we had hotel (almost) with a view of the characteristic top floors of the Rockheim. But we have no regrets. We spent nearly two hours here, and could happily visited the place again to see everything we had with us. Input display is interactive, and it was not all places it was just as easy to figure out what was going to "put it in time". Eventually we got the grip on it, not least thanks to the Nice Museum hosts. Lots and lots of good music, and information we knew from before. For a Nostalgitripp on 40 and a at 50.

  • Great multimedia and historical experience. Only had 45 minutes to visit, but I'd have needed 4 hours or more! Indispensable if you have a good musical taste.
  • An interesting recap of pop and rock history with nice exhibits. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. It's definitely worth a visit.
  • Very nice and interesting interactive concept about the Norsk rock- and pop history, of course including the Pussycats but also black metal acts like Satyricon, Immortal and good ol' Mayhem, absolutely worth visiting. Al types of music since the 60's are presented and you can play a lot of instruments yourself ; they work following the "silence concept" so you must use a headphone playing the drums. When I was there one of the headphones was molested; bring your own cheap supermarket headphone if you wanna be shure not to be disappointed in your first drum- guitar or organ session. 9,5/10
  • Its the must go to museum if you are a music fan or enthusiast
  • Rock museum of Norwegian artists.
