The exterior gives you some art deco and 1930's Labor Party art, but it is the inside that is impressive. This is where the Nobel Peace Prize is presented (the other four prizes are in Stockholm). The hall and other rooms in the building are...More

This is off the famous Karl Johans gate very close to the palace and the museum which makes it an easy to visit attraction. Beautiful building with art displays and a lovely back garden. From there you can easily walk to Aker Briggae.

The architecture reminded me of the Soviet revolutionary style, ornaments were a celebration of the workers. Poorly designed interior, lack of day light, a huge empty undefined space in the middle, weird wall art. I wouldn't waste time to go in.
