  • Paid £10 per person it’s a very small museum, with not much in. Very basic not much of Norwegian history  more »
  • Nice museum. Has free lockers for coats and things. Not a lot to see. A Viking section, native, and when I was there a Egyptian section. Nice gift store located on site. If you’re already in that.....  more »
  • Kunst /art gallery Particularly liked The Thinker and the Piccolo picture. Can be lots of passers-bys, busy i prefer quietest times usually in the morning's. You can chill and enjoy your time
  • The most comprehensive art museum in Oslo, featuring art from Ancient Greece to modern day. Particularly strong in artwork from Norway. Perhaps the best version of the portrait Scream is featured here.
