“Surprisingly good time”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014

Went here a few years ago. They had an exhibition about homosexual animals- it was really very interesting! They even had life size dolphins suspended from the ceiling showing you exactly how they do it! It was brilliant. There were a group of teenage school kids when we went who clearly thought this was hilarious but it was actually quite educational.

I have no idea what they have here now but we had a good time when we went. They had some great dinosaur exhibits too.

“Just Ok”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 May 2014

Went through the geology section of the museum. The descriptions were not in English. Wandered around the whole bottom floor. Not too impressed with the rock and mineral collection. Have seen better in other cities.

“Old fashioned and not worth visiting.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2013

This is by our opinion the oldest and less interesting museum of Oslo. Hope they redesign it soon. Even children above 7 will be bored.

“Not worth visiting!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2013 via mobile

This is an 'outdated' museum and the dinosaurs are not real but made out of plastic. I would only recommend this museum for people with small children.
