Grim
Aug 2020
This place was really grim. It's a small building with tiny tanks for the animals. It was so awful to see.
Also, it was supposed to be included in our Oslo Pass, but when we got there, they said they charged for children 2 and over. Oslo Pass is free for children 6 and under, so I was pretty annoyed that they didn't follow the Oslo Pass rules, but I paid since we were there already. It cost 120 kronor for a child to go see this heartbreaking place, which took all over 10 minutes.

Not what i expected
Feb 2020
On the website they claim that the animals they have are rescued. I asked an employee and they said they got most of them from a zoo. As in they were bred in the zoo, then sold to them. I was hoping to support a rescue industry, but instead i paid money to another greedy company that uses animals lives for profit. They had very nice living situations though. and there was monkeys there for some reason. Also dont go in the morning. Kids screaming everywhere. i swear a half a school of kids were there it was awful.

It’s not a park at all. It’s a small house with really tiny spaces for the animals. I cried since I arrived cause there where monkeys in really tiny spaces. Terrible and expensive I can’t believe they have this animals living like this.

Small but interesting exhibition, free entrance with Oslo Pass
May 2019
This attraction should be called Oslo Reptile House, as the term "Park" is misleading.
It consists of 2 small floors with cages in an ordinary looking house.

My husband and I visited this exhibition of reptiles on the way from the Historical Museum to Damstredet street.

As the entrance was free with our Oslo Pass we gave it a go, and we saw some fascinating and unusual snakes, lizards, chameleons, geckos, dwarf caimans, turtles, poison dart frogs, scorpions, spiders and marmoset monkeys.

At the time of our visit a caretaker had removed a (harmless) snake from one of the cages and let the kids who were brave enough handle and pet the reptile, all the while explaining how to do so without causing the snake any harm.
Needless to say that the kiddies were very exited.

Small and overpriced
Aug 2019 • Family
Having visited here I have to say that many of the reviews are very generous. Yes, some of the species here make for interesting viewing, but it’s a couple of small rooms in a downtown building, not a park!

If you’ve bought an Oslo card then no harm in visiting as it’s “free”, and kids will more than likely enjoy it. But if not then save yourself some money and do something else.

Small but charming Park

Something different in the middle of Oslo. Great for children, that may be as thrilled for meeting the varieties of reptiles, and a few monkeys, as being in a larger zoo.

A bit smallish
May 2019 • Family
The place is a bit crowded on holidays. It’s an exaggeration to call this a park, it’s more like an exhibition, about 30 cages. Friendly staff. A bit expensive if you have more than one kid.
