Shengen visa

As US citizens do we need to get this Visa in advance or just upon arrival? I have read conflicting info online.

Touristic or working purpose? There is a different handling.

Official US statement for travels to Schengen area - check passport requirements:

https:/…schengen.html

Final decision has Norway border control officer.

Therefore: if you have any special case I agree to suggestion in #1: Check Norwegian embassy / consulate in US before start of travel.
