Created as a hobby by the owner of a major brewery this collection includes tens of thousands of mini liquor bottles displayed in creative and whimsical ways. The humor of the owner is evident throughout. There is a small bar at the end where you...More

This is just a fun place to visit if you want to do something different. One of Oslo's richest men started collecting mini bottles and now has the biggest collection in the world. This might not be for everyone, but I give the presentation of...More

Ok if I was 10, but seriously? Spend time and money to see a private collection of miniature bottles? Get a life. Visit instead Ekebergparken, mr Ringnes great collection of (mostly) contemporary sculptures.

We were very amazed at this place over 50,000 miniature items not just bottles. Even had a house of horrors. The man who owns it built the place in 2003, this is well worth a visit rain or shine.
