It is very nice place to spend an hour with small children. Bigger kids also could find interesting videos, read or listen stories. Unfortunately everything is in Norwegian.

The teens were fascinated with all the oldies, and me by the resuscitation corner. Great that kids are taught BLS also in Norway.

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 :)

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
