Quite disappointed but it may be because of me and my relationship to technical museums in general. It seems to me that having parents with a university degree in math or physics is a requirement here to enjoy the place. The activities aren't described very clearly, and sometimes not described at all, so that I could unfortunately not understand what to understand... However the floor with the old vehicles has been much appreciated by my daugther who loved very much "the old machines"! To conclude I think it's important to maintain science and techniques museums, but I am not convinced by the content yet.
Took my kids there for a little day out, and they really enjoyed it. Fun and learning in one. A little hit and miss when it comes to finding your way around, but everything is interesting there, so don't worry about it. You get a map when you go in.
Probably one of my favourite museum in Oslo and ever. It's so interesting and I spent a very great time during my holiday. Five stars for sure.
Great place. Easy to access via bus, train or car. (Train is our favorite.) Great kids area on the bottom floor. They hold regular events that are always a blast. Cafeteria has a good selection of quick food. Great gift shop full of awesome toys and puzzles. One of my 3 year old's favorite places to go on a rainy day!
It would have been five stars only for the cafe. The museum is great for all ages, but the cafe is an no go area. The food was canteen standards at restaurant prices. The funny thing us when we ordered they said come back in about five. You would think they'd have a technical solution 🤔. Food was little bit cold as well.
