Film Museum is located in Filmens Hus (House of Film), together with other institutions related to the Norwegian film industry. The museum's goal is to give an insight into the history of Norwegian films and cinema. Some of the puppets from Norwegian director Ivo Caprino's animated films are exhibited here, and you can watch little snippets of Norwegian films. You can also visit the Kinematografteateret cinema, where historical films are shown non-stop. Call ahead to book a guided tour for your group.
The museum is one of several activity areas in the old, refurbished building that used to house the local police station. The exhibitions are of both temporary and permanent nature, but they have one aim in common: to achieve respect and interest for different cultures. Admission is free. The museum is located in Grønland, one of the lively and colorful parts of the city.
Located in Frognerparken by the Vigeland sculpture park, this museum takes you through Oslo's 1000 years of history. As capital of Norway, though, its history is much shorter. You will find models of the old city (when it was called Christiania and Norway was part of Denmark) and of Akershus Fortress. The museum has its own multimedia show and also arranges guided tours.
