The Norwegian Children's Museum is one of a handful of its kind in Europe. Our exhibitions and activities are about almost anything connected with children and childhood. A children's museum combines the traditional museum's focus on documentation and the exhibition of objects from the past with the young person's wish to participate, investigate and play. A children's museum also evokes nostalgia and the recollection of one's own childhood. You will walk through the maze of growing up in a museum world of exhibitions, activities and theatre. Exhibitions and activities. Toys, a tree hut, labyrinths, board games and play. Open daily in school holidays.

Suddenly four hours were gone as if by magic! Our three children had a blast exploring all facets of the exhibition. Birds, animals, toys, fairytales and all. This might be best suited for Scandinavian/Norwegian visitors since most of the history in the Children's Museum is...More
