A must-visit if you are a music fan, and well worth it if you are not. Situated near the ferry port, train and bus stations this museum is an interactive delight. Lots of hands on displays for those who are young and young at heart....More

We visited this museum, which was very close to where our cruise ship docked, and found it really interesting and interactive. We are from the UK and all the interactive panels could be changed into English.

This is basically a museum, but also an activity centre, including a concert hall. When the name indicates rock, it is actually more than that. For Norwegians it is a look-back to a broader entertainment long before rock music was common. A lot of the...More

If you are a Norwegian music fan, than this is the place for you. For me it is ok, but you can shelter from the cold weather during my hiking on Sundays by visiting its museum to warm up.

So much lost potential here. I went to Rockheim expecting to learn a lot about Norwegian popular music. Instead, what I got was mostly a wanky multimedia experience with old touchscreens and laser pointers that basically only played music videos, songs, and showed pictures — things...More

Do not select Rockheim's restaurant as the location for large Christmas dinner gatherings. It gets hot, noisy and crowded. The tiny buffet table, tucked away in a corner, can only take about 6 people at a time. I'm guessing there was no other option since...More
