Oslo Norway Sights & Other Must Do’s
While in Oslo, Norway there are plenty of awesome things to do and must see’s. Be sure to also check out some of Oslo’s amazing restaurant’s during your visit. A few of my favorite Oslo other must do’s are below!
National Museum of Art – This was a nice Museum with some great pieces by Picasso, one Monet, and various other artists. If you’re like me and like to spend about an hour or so in a museum, this is just the spot for you. They have an AMAZING gift shop where I found some posters to add to my collection of Museum exhibits I’ve enjoyed during my travels. Universitetsgata 13 0164 Oslo, Norway.21 98 20 00.
The Opera House – This is new to Oslo and a very impressive addition. We visited later in the afternoon and it was the night of a movie premier so it was more crowded than usual. The views of the ocean are magnificent as is the amazing architecture of the building. It would be nice to visit and bring a bottle of wine to enjoy the Sunset, gorgeous views, and the magnificent Opera House. Kirsten Flagstads Plass 1 0150 Oslo, Norway.21 42 21 00.
The Vigeland Park – One of Oslo’s most beautiful public parks, Vigeland Park contains the life’s work of Gustav Vigeland, a famous Norwegian sculptor. More than 200 Vigeland masterpieces are on display, including the bronze “Sinnataggen” (Angry Boy) and “Monolitten”. Nobels gate 32 . N-0268 Oslo. 47 23 49 37 00.

Viking Ship Museum – Since the Scandinavians are known for their Viking heritage when in Oslo definitely check out the Viking Ship museum. It’s very cool to get to since you can take a water ferry from the city about a 10 minute ride and you’re in a very high-end suburb just on the other side of the water. Huk Aveny 35. 0287 Oslo. Norway. 22 13 52 80.
