I visit the Oslo City Hall. It was very impressive. Wonderful architect with amazing paintings especially upstairs. Unfortunately there was a rude guard at the front of the door that ruined that visit.

We unfortunately could not go inside as it was being prepared for the Nobel peace prize being awarded in a couple of days but we enjoyed the magnificent murals on each side of the galleries leading to the entrance

Not sure why you couldn’t get in. We were able to enter on two different occasions, on different days.
