This is an interesting building with an interesting history. It has some fine artwork. To get the best from a visit take a free guided tour. The guides are excellent and full of the kind of information that makes the viewing more interesting.

We were here with a tour guide so it was very informative. The murals were amazing and I really enjoyed learning what each one meant. It was a great little history lesson. It was interesting to learn a little more about the Nobel Peace Prize...More

Walking in the grandeur of the central hall made me think of the amazing Nobel Peace prize winners who have graced that space over the years. Beyond the intricate tile work in the space, I was humbled to be a space occupied on an annual...More

From the outside, this is a big ugly brick building. Built in the 1950s, it’s rather blocky looking with two tower-like structures, a clock, and a fountain near the front entrance. There’s also a series of three-dimensional artwork along the walls on both sides leading...More

This was our first tour in Norway, and gave us good background on Norwegian history. Going here we initially didn’t realize what a role this building played and what extensive murals it has depicting the city and nation’s history. Definitely try to catch the English...More

We used our Oslo Pass, so it was free. The tour was excellent. It’s a bit of a lump of a building, but the more we kept seeing it from the outside the more we accepted it. Inside it is equally strongand themed. Modern heavy...More

Oslo doesn’t have many interesting buildings to offer. The royal palace is very boring and bland, even the Renzo Piano designed museum in the Harbor is just so, so, but the city hall is magnificent. The outside at least. It’s in our opinion the best...More
