The Norwegian Petroleum museum (Norsk Oljemuseum) is a museum for everyone. Its exhibits explain how oil and gas are created, discovered and produced, and what they are used for. The museum also provides information about technological advances and the way petroleum influences Norwegian society.

The exhibits
Original objects, models, film and interactive exhibits illustrate everything from everyday life offshore to technology and dramatic incidents. The exhibit “North Sea Divers” is a new exhibition about the pioneer-divers in the North Sea. Interactive stations, films and texts explain the challenging work the divers had.


3D movie
In the cinema, the 3D movie “Petropolis” is shown all day. Here you can experience scary dinosaurs and technological adventures told in a humoristic and engaging way. The exhibitions are texted in English as well as Norwegian and all the films are in English. Activity sheets for children and activities for youngsters throughout the exhibitions. Try the Catastrophe room and rescue chute – if you dare!


Museum shop and food options
Museum shop with interesting gifts for young and elderly as a memento of your visit to the museum. Something which expands your knowledge of oil and gas, or simply something you like. Museum café Bølgen & Moi serves delicious light meals in their restaurant with a seaview.
