What beautiful flowers! My husband and I truly enjoyed strolling through the gardens outside this museum. There are ponds as well, and lots to photograph if you like that.

I stopped in because I love museums. And as a further incentive, any students get in free, but the 50nok entrance fee was very reasonable anyway. I was surprised by how great this museum was, an amazing range of diversity in the zoological collection, and...More
