You have to pay to go in but only 50 NOK so worth going in. Great artefacts and things to see. Well worth the trip up to the entrance.

Crunched for time, we took a look around the Cathedral before heading into the shopping district for just a short time as well. So much to do, and so little time, since our afternoon was taken up by a boat tour to Pulpit Rock. Still...More
