This is a great museum which is packed full of interesting and interactive exhibits related to the oil industry and dinosaurs! As well as learning about the history of oil you can wander through mock ups of the rigs themselves, experience life on a rig, life rafts and so on. Easy to spend a couple of hours here, even if you don't think you are interested in oil
A very nice LITTLE museum. It was a good experience visiting here, they have a nice theme going on from having moving, growling dinosaurs models to videos about how oil came to be to how the oil boom came to Norway. Models of rigs and ships. But it is a pretty small museum as far as museums go, they could have shown so much more at a bigger place, but I guess they're bound by the area they have. Hence 4 stars out of 5.
