I'll be honest, I found out about this place prior to our visit to Oslo so didn't stumble upon it by accident. It's only really obvious what's inside when you clock the tram lines heading inside a non descript looking building, and it's a quaint...More

Well I mean it. It's really cool inside... doesn't seem like it has heating of any kind... interesting to take a look though.

I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed the museum. It's correct that it's not any heating during the winter apart from the entrance. Unfortunately that would be too expensive.

One of the really good things about this museum is that you can actually go inside almost all of the trams, buses and underground trains on display. If you have visited Oslo during the sixties, seventies, eighties or nineties you are sure to see something...More

A very nice museum that contains quite a lot of well conserved vehicles (tram, metro and bus). I would not hesitate to go back and would certainly recommend it to people interested in this! :D
