Fascinating slice of living history
Jul 2019
Take the subway (T-bane) to the Majorstuen stop, and then walk one block to this fascinating warehouse that is packed FULL of rolling stock from Oslo public transportation history. Charming and informative, with a huge collection of historic streetcars and buses.

History of Trikken

Lovely little museum at Majorstua in Oslo. A little hidden away, but quite easy to find. Entrance around 100Nkr. Well worth it. Great for enthusiasts or just a trip with the kids. Most trams you can board. Little shop with souvenirs and stuff for enthusiasts. Great visit.

Tramway museum
Jul 2019 • Solo
Many different trams that used to drive through the streets of Oslo, most of which can be entered. Some interesting information about tram and metro systems around the worlds, although not all of it in English. Entrance only NOK 50. Takes an hour or so.

Good for enthusiasts

A pleasant place to kill an hour, even if you just have a passing interest in trams and buses. There appeared to be loads of potentially interesting information about the development of public transport in Norway, but unfortunately only in Norwegian. It costs 50 NOK for an adult, so a cheap thing to do in Oslo.

A pleasant way to spend little
Jan 2019 • Couples
I'll be honest, I found out about this place prior to our visit to Oslo so didn't stumble upon it by accident.
It's only really obvious what's inside when you clock the tram lines heading inside a non descript looking building, and it's a quaint little way to spend an hour or so.
The trams were quite interesting, I'd not really ever been to a museum quite like it before as most of them bar you from sitting on the exhibits, which is a bit of a disadvantage as a lot of older vehicles have smells, feels and auras, which is exactly where this place excels. A lot of them still have period adverts, notices and other materials aboard, like a huge time capsule.

A slight shame some of the buses were so packed in but it's a limited space.

I liked it. Not usually into railed vehicles or buses (even though I work on the railway in the UK!), but if you're in to any form of transportation, it's worth a look. Maybe even if you're not.

Friendly little museum
Dec 2018 • Couples
This small museum is run by volunteers and has a number of old trams, buses and metro trains on display.
The people who run it are very friendly and if you are interested in transport it is well worth a visit not being far from the centre of Oslo.

Small but nice transport museum
Aug 2018 • Solo
I am a huge fan of transport museums and visit them in every city to which I travel. Though this museum has limited days and hours, and the building itself is quite small, please do visit if you enjoy seeing old buses and trams! It is close to the city center and does not appear to be well known, as I was the only visitor when I was there! You are allowed to enter the vehicles on display, which is an added bonus. It is clear that the vehicles were lovingly restored. A “must” for transport history enthusiasts!

Excellent collection and great value for money
Aug 2018
I have an interest in history and transport, so when I got the opportunity to visit the transport museum in Oslo I could not resist. The museum is located in a former tramshed not far from the city centre and a 2 minutes walk from the metro and a tram stop. The collection houses trams, metro trains and busses dating from 1898. All of these are in excellent condition and not only are you allowed to enter them, but are actively encouraged to do so. The staff too are very friendly and for anyone who enjoys history or transport, this is well worth a visit.

A cool museum

Well I mean it. It's really cool inside... doesn't seem like it has heating of any kind... interesting to take a look though.

I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed the museum. It's correct that it's not any heating during the winter apart from the entrance. Unfortunately that would be too expensive.

Great fun if you like old trams and underground trains
Oct 2016 • Friends
One of the really good things about this museum is that you can actually go inside almost all of the trams, buses and underground trains on display. If you have visited Oslo during the sixties, seventies, eighties or nineties you are sure to see something familiar here. One of the highlights for my four-year old was the ability to "drive" a tram all the way up to Frognerseteren pass Holmenkollen. It's not much heating inside the big hall, so if the weather is cold, it's quite cold inside as well.
