Norwegian Petroleum Museum Reviews
Honestly, I would not have visited this museum if it wasn't for a crewmember of our flight from Amsterdam to Stavanger who advised us to go because he got some positive feedback about this museum... more »
Interesting place, not a big museum. Very informative specially for Oil workers. I wouldn't go if I didn't work in the industry, it's not the cheapest place to visit. more »
Really great place to visit if you’re in Stavanger. Even if you’re not interested in the oil industry, this place is worth a look. Great set up with a variety of different interactive areas throughout, information is accurate and to a good level for understanding and if you’re bringing children, they wont be bored. I have been here several times over the years and this museum continues to deliver the goods. Keep it up!
High quality exhibits, videos and interactive equipment. scale models were fascinating. Good mix of summary and detailed text. A peek into different a world.
