Fram Polar Ship Museum
#1 of 108 Museums in Oslo
This was among the best museums we have ever visited as a family, The history and the preservation effort is simply outstanding and a great tribute to the explorers.
Best reached by ferry from Oslo and combined with visits to the other two museums nearby and also the Viking Museum a short bus ride away (or the other way around as the ferry stops at both locations)

Of all the palaces and art museums visited on my recent Baltic cruise the park and the incredible sculptures were the highlight of my trip.
It includes entry into all the museums (about 100 Kroner each so around £9) and includes the entire public transport network including the ferries.

Norway's Resistance Museum (Norges Hjemmefront Museum)
#8 of 108 Museums in Oslo
I have seen a lot of war and memorial museums around the world and this ranks right up there for intrigue, interesting facts, and a lot of "who knew?!!" facts about those tough and stoic Norwegians in the resistance.
This is one of the most interesting museums we have explored especially if one is interested in World War 11 history.

Botanical Gardens (Botanisk Hage og Museum)

It`s a perfect place to go for a picnic, an afternoon walk, a run or visit the museums.
But it's still a nice park to take a stroll, or you can visit the zoological and natural history museums.
Viking Ship Museum
#11 of 108 Museums in Oslo
Liked it and love history and unique Museums very small but had an Oslo card so went loads of places - I loved the views you can get above and a real sense of history and Norwegian pride.
Nearby museums and the other place definitely worth a visit too is the Nobel Peace Price (or is it the Nobel Piece Prize?) center.

The Historical Museum
#21 of 108 Museums in Oslo
All museums and a lot of attractions are either cheaper or free with it, and given the price of the city every little helps.
Taken in conjunction with the other big Viking age attraction that Oslo has to offer, the Viking Ship Museum, the Historical Museum's exhibits on the Vikings really do flesh out these amazing people.

After the crowds at the Vigeland Sculpture Park, do what we did and take a break here at the Oslo City Museum which is right next door.
