  • My third visit here, last time 4-5 years ago. I really appreciate some of improvements, like dinosaurs, to make it more interesting also for kids. Absolutely MUST SEE, when You visit Stavanger!
  • Really interesting museum and actually one reason I wanted to visit Stavanger. Some information would need updating and would be interesting to read about how Norwegian oil industry has been shown in popular culture like in Lykkeland. Sadly some of the activities where still closed due to the corona.
