What travellers are saying
- This design must be aimed at Norwegian travellers as there was very little English! We were warned before we paid our 100 krone admission, but since we knew there were interactive activities we thought we'd give it a go. The exhibits were also nice to look out even if we could only guess the content. Great old gramophones and glorious guitars, Eurovision entries and festival performances. The staff were friendly and the museum was super quiet (even though it was a Saturday) so we had a great time enjoying the interactive exhibits which included a stage with a panoramic video of the crowd so you could pretend you were a star, a recording studio, and a photographic/design opportunity to make an album cover. These were a lot of fun although I would love more song options to cover in the recording studio! The museum reminded me of the EMP museum in Seattle but quieter and better value. The staff were friendly and the location is also near some nice riverside walks and cafes.Written 25 April 2017This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- Perfect and unforgettable composition of children’s art and masterpieces from all over the world, cheap tickets, easy to come with public transport, close to city-center. Recommend both to adults and families.Written 25 November 2018This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- A new arrival on the city’s cultural scene, it’s a superb addition. We consider it a must see for anyone fascinated with illusions and the tricks our minds continuously play on us.
With knowledgeable and enthusiastic staff it was great strolling around and observing each of the exhibits. Bilingual explanations supplemented by avid staff input make for an enjoyable couple hours.
Using properties of the physical world, particularly of light, and its interactions with our brain and how it interprets this input, make for fascinating displays.
A great one comprises a straight bolt threading through two nuts, a physical impossibility. But made to appear real and possible.
Another intriguing item shows a rotating straight stick fitting through a curved opening, something we intuitively believe impossible.
Impressions of infinite depth are to be observed in quite shallow compartments. A room filled with all-round mirrors conjure up infinitely receding images of the observer.Written 18 June 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
