Overview

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.

Very good place to spend a couple of hours reminiscing or comparing children's culture and playthings. Took my grandchildren here and they loved it.

A nice place for kids. It has been rearranged bot long ago and some exhibitions have been changed. For example, the area with stuffed animals is smaller and shows less animals. Also, miss that homemade ice cream they had in their cafeteria :)

When I have seen it's name I wasn't sure what it could be about, but I had a really good time there. My favorite was the super huge doll in the middle of the room

This is a separate part of the museum. I only noticed it because it was visible from the cafe, just as you see it in this picture. You have to pass through an empty room to get into it, a bit forlorn.

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
