Norwegian Petroleum Museum Reviews
Passed this before and shipped it.. didn’t think it could possibly be interesting. Was wrong...a very good museum, extremely interesting, lots to see and extremely helpful, friendly staff. more »
Her kan en gå gjennom heile olje/gass historien på norsk sokkel med å lese, lytte og sjå modeller og bilder. Veldig bra! more »
Must visit! Only came here as I had some time to kill. Really informative and interesting. I really do wish I had more time here as I arrived an hour before closing. All information provided was so engrossing and surprisingly emotional.
A really well-done museum packed with information ranging from the history of the oil and gas industry in Norway to the current state and aspired future state (there’s a particularly nice section about renewable/clean energy). Great for all ages and learner types as there are many interactive elements in the museum in addition to text-heavy sections. Would suggest 1.5 - 2 hours for a visit.
