There is lots to see and do for a family with small children. The variety of the different exhibitions and the scientific activities on lower floors for children are engaging. The level of noise in the cafe is daunting, but children don't mind. Excellent gift store!

This museum has indeed developed into a major attraction for our city. We take our grandchildren there about twice a year, and experience new exhibitions, games and attractions every time. There is a spaceous cafe as well as a refectory area where classes of school children can bring their lunch. The museum shop is a magnet for the kids and... More

Visited museum @ 30 April, weather in Oslo was so bad that we decided to go @ museum for some dry Norway experience. There was special day, something like 100 old & new tv/console games to try out. So it was really crowded, but the place is BIG and plenty of rooms to discover and play. You should reserve more... More

Amazing exhibition on computer gaming through the ages. All kinds of consoles and games. The rest of the museum shows the industrialization of our world. Absolutely worth a visit. The restaurant is OK and food is prepared within 10 minutes from ordering.
