What's On Oslo: September/October

Page 1


Welcome to What’s On Oslo in September and October, lively months with lots of indoor and outdoor activities to keep you on your toes.

A great way to get started is museum hopping, and in this issue you will as usual find our essential Museum Guide to Oslo’s many brilliant museums.

In the same section we also have information about guided boat trips on the Oslo Fjord, one of the city's most traditional and popular sightseeing adventures.

The cooling weather means that while the city’s many parks, beaches, islands and forests are still popular on good-weather-days, indoor offerings are also drawing the crowds.

See oslokulturnatt.no to find out more Team What’s on Oslo.

On September 16th Oslo arranges the mighty Oslo Culture Night, Norway’s biggest one day festival with completely free events all over town. The events are organized under the umbrella terms music and dance, art and culture, exploration, film and theatre, and architecture and design.


Something for everyone, in other words!


Museums with everything from Munchworks and other world class paintings, to a real Viking ship, a medieval stave church, Norway’s polar explorers, world class children’s art, technology, military history, Oslo’s history, ski history, and much more.
