I liked the museum. It gives you an overview of human being weakness points! It made me think about myself. I felt very connected to other people in the world when I saw they had some same experiences as me.
Don't miss the room called :"you are not alone" . you will enjoy taking photo when you are surrounded by mirrors in any direction!

A good, interactive museum
Jan. 2018 • Friends
It seems that exhibits are replaced frequently, while one exhibit is more permanent. It questions our prejudices, what prejudices are and where they come from. Good questions that any person should reflect on. The museum is free and it is located in the most exciting and multicultural district of Oslo.

Up to date in old police station
Aug. 2017
In the old police station you find the Intercultural Museum, in the heart of Oslo's most diversed area. The exhibitions are modern and interactive and always with very up to date themes. Bring the kids, they will appreciate the audio, video and engaging effects. And it's free!

Thought-provoking museum
Jul. 2017 • Solo
While a fairly small museum, I found it to be a wonderful space for reflecting upon intercultural issues that face modern societies. It has several interactive elements and art pieces that are very interesting for all ages. I do recommend this museum for a visit, especially when feeling receptive and reflective for maximum effect.

Don't go out of your way to get here

This is an OK museum at best. It is free. It is very small. It has an exhibit on the Roma people that wasn't that exciting. The highlight was an actual Roma-mobile that you can enter and touch everything (open drawers, etc) out in the backyard.

Brief but Worth Doing
Jun. 2015 • Business
This free museum focuses on the history of the Roma in Norway. It's small but worth spending the 20 minutes it takes to tour it, just for how it raises your consciousness about the travails this group faced over several centuries. Some of the exhibits have English translations, and the pictures are moving.

This little museum is just a brief walk from the nearby train station and the Radisson Blu Plaza. I popped over to see it when I had an hour to spare on a business trip.
