This is not a big museum and id doesn't take too long to visit it. It is located in the Vigeland Park. It is an interesting museum, it showes the history of the city through different ways. It is quite a nice museum to visit.

Easy to miss whilst walling through the park if you don't know what you are looking for. The museum is free and has a small cafe attached. It's family friendly but buggies have to be parked outside. It holds lots of information on the history...More

This museum is a perfect introduction to Oslo history. It takes you from the founding of the city in the 12th century to the present day. The primary exhibits are well documented in English, and in addition, there is a good English audio guide. It...More
