The Norwegian Children's Museum is one of a handful of its kind in Europe. Our exhibitions and activities are about almost anything connected with children and childhood. A children's museum combines the traditional museum's focus on documentation and the exhibition of objects from the past with the young person's wish to participate, investigate and play. A children's museum also evokes nostalgia and the recollection of one's own childhood. You will walk through the maze of growing up in a museum world of exhibitions, activities and theatre. Exhibitions and activities. Toys, a tree hut, labyrinths, board games and play. Open daily in school holidays.

The Children's Museum was smaller than I expected. It has a collection of dolls and old toy models, you may have enjoyed as a child. I could not read the signage (Norwegian of course), so you may be able to enjoy it more, if you can read about the items. I did not find it very interactive. The castle is... More

targetted at younger end, probably less than 8. Good on a rainy day for a couple of hours max. Includes the kids museum which is mainly a play castle thing, plus some old fashioned toys, but you also access the Stavanger museum which has got some natural history stuff - skeletons, animals, fish etc.

The museum is made for children, but we grown-ups also gets a chance to re-discover some of the magic from times gone by when our minds were set on quite other thing than the adult brain finds most important most of the time. That is; if we really want to - and let go of some of the grown-up bondries.... More

After ages without go to Barnemuseet, we give it a chance again. We actually stop to be frequent at this museum at the Sølvberg cultural center, because I could not afford the price required or stand the bad behavior of woman in the cash at same local. This time the kids who were there for work or help the families... More
