Top things to do in Oslo: Nobel Peace Center
The Nobel Peace Center is a great place to visit if you want to discover more about the Nce Prize winners and the selection process. I would say that if you acquire an Oslo Pass, it in fact a place you should see. Is close to one of the hippest places and one of the top things to do in Oslo which is Aker Brygge. If you visit this museum, you will be close to many other attractions in the city.

Top things to do in Oslo: Edvard Munch Museum
I must say that Edvard Munch Munch is one of my favorite painters. I always find a way to enjoy this museum. Here you will get to seek beyond the famous Scream. In the Munch Museum, they have a copy of the Scream. You can actually see some other of his works as his self-portraits. The Munch Museum was relocated to a new building close to the Opera House and these are the top things to do in Oslo.

Top things to do in Oslo: Ibsen Museum
This is my personal favorite museum in Oslo, but it all has to do with my personal lovIbseniterature. A Doll’s House is one of my favorite plays in the history of theater. In the Ibsen’s Museum, you have a great idea of Ibsen’s literary influences. You can join the tour inside the apartment he lived in for the last 11 years of his life. If you like literature, and theatre, or are just curious, this is one of the top things to do in Oslo with your Oslo Pass.

Top things to do in Oslo: National Gallery
This is the place where you actually will see the original Scream painting, the most famous work of Edvard Munch. The National Gallery has a great representation of Norwegian and Scandinavian art that every art enthusiast should see. The National Gallery is included in the Oslo Pass, but on Thursday is free. Its permanent collections and the temporary ones are totally some of the top things to do in Oslo.

Top things to do in Oslo: National Library
As I already mentioned, I am a literature freak and yes, the National Library holds different expositions related to Norwegian Literature. I was lucky enough that during my visit they were having an exposition called Nora Around The World. This exposition is about the different actresses around the world that have played the role of Nora in Ibsen’s play A Doll House. If you ask me, this exposition was one of the top things to do in Oslo if you visit.

Top things to do in Oslo: Norwegian Museum of Cultural History
This is a museum no one should miss when visiting Oslo. This open-air museum contains 150 different house models from different periods in Norwegian history. You also can get to see their traditional clothes, the way they used to live, and learn about their traditional dances. You can even try their traditional bread collapse. This would be one of the top things to do in Oslo -regardless of age and if you’re a person who enjoys museums or not-

Top things to do in Oslo for free with Oslo Pass:
Vigeland Sculpture Park
The Vigeland Sculpture Park is the most visited attraction in Oslo. Here you can find more than 200 sculptures made by Gustav Vigeland made out of bronze and granite. At the center of the park, you can find the Monolith, one of Vigeland’s most known pieces. It is made out of carved granite and features different bodies climbing each other to form a tower. If you’re a fan of Vigeland’s work you might know that human figures are one of his main themes. In this park, you will have the opportunity to get to see that. Another place that is one of the top things to do in Oslo.

Top things to do in Oslo: Opera House
Another one of the top things to do in Oslo. This amazing building is made out of granite and marble imported from Italy and has become one of the landmarks of the city. The building is made to allow visitors to climb up to the roof and get to see the city from there. These have been some of my favorite experiences in the city.

Good to know about the pass and how expensive it is there! Gotta be prepared 🙂 I do hope to visit someday!!
Ooh, I bet the “Nora Around the World” exhibit was amazing, I’d love to see that!
I loved it! It was great to see how in the whole world they have different approaches to such a strong female role! it was great!
I went to Oslo years ago and it was also one of the most expensive cities then too! That sculpture park haunted my dreams (so random) but I really liked the Munch Museum as well. Where else have you been in Norway?
So far, I have only been in Oslo, but Im keeping my hopes to visit Berger, Flam, Trondheim and Tromso someday!
When I visited Vienna I bought a similar pass and it seemed to save me a lot of money! I’ll have to remember this when I visit Oslo 🙂

The viking ship museum and the ski jumping hill was two other places I really liked in Oslo besides Vigeland Park. 🙂
I got a city pass for few of the cities I visited in Europe this time around. Will keep this in mind when I visit Oslo. I loved the Vigeland Sculpture park the best.
Oslo looks amazing!! Wow some of these photos are stunning, and so many places i want to see too! I love a good pass as well, and this definitely looks value for money in an expensive city!
