Southern Norway Sights

Norsk Oljemuseum (Norwegian Petroleum Museum)

  • Fodor's Choice

Fodor's Review

Resembling a shiny offshore oil platform, the dynamic Norsk Oljemuseum is an absolute must-see. In 1969 oil was discovered off the coast of Norway. The museum explains how oil forms, how it's found and produced, its many uses, and its impact on Norway. Interactive multimedia exhibits accompany original artifacts, models, and films. A reconstructed offshore platform includes oil workers' living quarters—as well as the sound of drilling and the smell of oil. The highly

recommended museum café, by restaurateurs Bølgen & Moi, serves dinners as well as lighter fare.
