  • I don't even know where to begin! This amazing place has it all! We were expecting a fly-by visit to tick it off our Oslo museum list and ended up staying for several hours. If you have young kids and want to take the family on an incredible day out, this is a must-do. I barely took any pictures, it was that much fun. The museum takes you on an evolutionary journey through various technologies, including sound, vision, medical, transportation etc. Not only can kids learn so much about how our technology has evolved through time, there is so much for them to enjoy and interact with. It's educational, and fun. They even have actual planes and a train on the top floor of the museum! Even I turned into a kid seeing various gaming consoles I played with displayed there. This place boasts a canteen, gift shop, several restrooms, and lockers to store your coats and bags. Each section is as exciting as the next one. It's a facinating journey that everyone should experience, no matter how young or old you are. If you're visiting Oslo, set a day aside to explore this one! You won't regret it!
  • Quite good. Exhibits are nicely placed. Tickets are costly in my opinion especially for tourists like me since lot of the exhibits didn't have descriptions in English, which was bit of a disappointment.
