Overview

Norway's largest collection of natural objects is available to the public in the Botanical Garden, the greenhouses and the Zoological Museum. Note: The museum is closed 30 October–26 December 2017 due to renovations.  The Botanical GArden, the museum shop, the greenhouses and the exhibition in Tøyen Manor will still be open. The Zoological Museum has permanent and changing exhibitions displaying wildlife from Norway and the rest of the world. Here you can among other things see a lifelike replica of a beaver dam, scenes from arctic wildlife and an international exhibition with exhibits ranging from penguins in Antarctica to chimpanzees and okapi in African rainforests. The Geological Museum is currently closed to the public, but you'll find many of the highlights of the exhibition "Stone and bone" in the same building as the Zoological Museum. Free entry to the Natural History Museum on Thursdays. The Botanical Garden was established in 1814, and with its 35,000 plants, 7,500 species and 150-acre garden it is a popular tourist destination and an important recreational area for the city's population. Entry to the garden is free. The garden is also home to the two exhibition greenhouses Palmehuset and Victoriahuset. Norwegian name: Naturhistorisk museum
