Learn more about cancer and the body's mysteries in a challenging and entertaining way.

Did you know that dinosaurs got cancer 70 million years ago? That quarantine and vaccines played an important role as early as in the 18th century? Or that alcohol once was the only available anaesthetic for operations?

You'll learn more about this, and much more, at the Norwegian Cancer Society's Science Centre in Oslo. Through hands-on activities and installations, you acquire more knowledge on cancer and the body’s mysteries in a challenging and entertaining way. You can test your abilities as a surgeon and learn about fantastic results from cancer research, learn to separate fact from myth on the subject, and explore how technology can help us in cancer treatment now and in the future.  
The interactive exhibits let you repair strands of DNA, mix a responsible doses of chemotherapy, and play The Guardians of the Cells, where you can help the immune system kill cancer cells.

The centre is open to all and entry is free, but visitors are encouraged to give a small donation if they can.
Groups may book guided tours outside of normal opening hours.
