NileGuide Expert tip:
The easiest way from Oslo's city center is by metro to Tøyen, then a pleasant walk through the Botanical gardens.
The University of Oslo's Natural history museums comprise the Geological museum and the Zoological museum. The museums are housed in early 19th century Art Nouveau buildings, surrounded by the Botanical Gardens. Since May 2009, the most famous exhibit is our 47-million-year-old relative Ida, the oldest primate ever found. More detailed information is given at the entries for the separate museums/gardens. Open Tuesday - Sunday 1100 - 1600. Admission is NOK 50 for adults and 25 for children/student/pensioners; free for children under 4. Admission covers both museums. Free admission to the Botanical gardens.
