    Really interesting and informative. Enough interactive exhibits aswell. Didn’t know much about Amundsen besides the husky vs dogs so this was great. Went to this as part of the Oslo pass which is highly recommended

    Well - I feel like I am cheating a bit here, as we did not go in the opera house itself, but visited the grounds and climbed up the roof. Great view from up top and it was a fun, entertaining visit.

    Interesting to understand the life of such passionate artist! Personal history, early and later work compared, methods and mechanisms explained

    Super interesting place with lots and lots of buildings and exhibitions, we hadn't time to see more than a small part. But the stave church from Gol alone is worth a visit and a five-star recommendation. This building is different from anything else you have ever seen (besides a few other norwegian stave churcs), you absolutely won't regret a visit.

    Favorite museum in Oslo. Tells the story of Thor Heyerdahl and his journeys on the oceans. Of course, the story has been told in books and on film, but at this museum you can see the actual boats and artifacts up close and in person. The museum takes you through the entire life of Thor and his mates. You'll see the original Kon-Tiki and the Ra; however, the best parts of the museum are the artifacts that were used on the boats as well as those artifacts found while exploring the Polynesian islands. If you are a fan of the Kon-Tiki or Thor Heyerdahl, you won't want to miss this museum when visiting Oslo. It is just a short boat ride across the bay to see the museum, or you can take a bus around the bay to visit. Be sure to have some extra time to really enjoy all of the exhibits and artifacts on display at this great museum.

    Not the biggest museum, and kind of pricey. It displays a very important part of Norwegian history. Crowded with bus-tourist during the summer months.

    Fantastic way to start our first trip to Oslo. We took the T-bane to Holmenkollen and took a slow walk up a fairly steep hill, taking in the view as we walked. This took around 20 minutes. The entrance to the museum, jump tower and zipline is on the north side of the jump, just follow the signs. There is a great view of the jump itself and auditorium from this route. I agree with another reviewer - if you suffer from vertigo (the actual condition or a fear of heights!) then this is quite steep, especially on the steps down. Otherwise there is a barrier to lean on. There is a great museum leading you towards the jump tower that’s well worth looking at, including 5 models of the ski jump as it has evolved over the years. There is a lift up to the jump tower. As you get out of the lift, the zipline is to the right and to the left a great view of the jump, plus steps up to the very top. Beautiful views over Oslo and the surrounding hills. The worst bit for vertigo sufferers (I have the condition, where a turn of the head can cause room spin) is descending the stairs from the top to the floor below - all you can see is the jump below and everyone I saw was walking very slowly! Brilliant visit, I didn’t realise this was on my bucket list! Hope to return to do the zipline!

    Beautiful sea! The sunset here is something else. Many ways to travel these waters by boat, ferry or even a big cruise. Big part of Oslo’s identity

    If you're visiting Oslo on a sunny day, go to the top of the castle area and look at the Oslo fjord as it sparkles beneath.

    I have visited it with still quite some snow and in spring with nice green set up : interesting sculpture park, and nice place to get a breathe (too bad though with the works going on since a while in part of the park).

    Spent 4 hours there just with the second floor. Price is fair and the staff is helpful. The layout of the museum is slightly confusing, so try to get oriented before wandering in.
