Museum of Oslo

  •  /  km From You

Oslo's own museum presents the city's history through models, paintings and photographs. The museum's exhibitions are mainly in Norwegian, but you may borrow the free audioguide "1,000 years in 20 minutes", available in English, French, German, Somali, Punjabi, Polish and Arabic – and Norwegian.

Family activity: The City Detective
With the museum's own augmented reality app "The City Detective" you can look into Oslo's past: visit a large family in a one-bedroom apartment, experience the power of the Akerselva river and see how much the main street of Karl Johan has changed! Your goal is to find ten historic stations in the exhibition OsLove – City History for Beginners. You do not need to know Norwegian to use the app.
All participants get a prize. Ipods may be borrowed in the museum shop. 
Free for children and adults. Recommended especially for children ages 5–12.
