Tiger City

Norway's capital city, Oslo boasts a thousand years of history and a diverse mix of architecture that blends old, new, and ultra-modern.
Get a sense of the local culture at Astrup Fearnley Museet and Vigeland Museum. Explore hidden gems such as Norges Hjemmefrontmuseum and Nordisk bibelmuseum. There's lots more to do: get engrossed in the history at Fram Museum, steep yourself in history at 22 July Centre, see the interesting displays at Viking Ship Museum, and find something for the whole family at Norsk Folkemuseum.

For reviews, maps, other places to visit, and more tourist information, read Oslo itinerary builder website.
