day 15: oslo, and museums (0 comments)
after having spent the night at the most expensive and largest camping site up to now, we bought two oslo passes, that act as a 24 hours ticket for the public transport system, entrance card to approximately 30 museums, free parking ticket within the entire city, discount pass on sight-seeing tours, restaurants, and souvenir-shops. so this actually cheap little piece of paper came in very handy to us, and so we dedicated this day once more to visiting museums. the first one was the munch museum ("the scream"), which contains a broad selection of his works, which were testamentary gifts to the city of oslo by edvard munch. at the entrance we felt like being on an airport, due to all the security checks one had to undergo to enter the museum. no liquids, metal detectors and the like, and x-raying the bags. the exhibition itself was pretty interesting, and there were loads of other people (most likely tourists). afterwards we drove to the oslo reptile park, which was a small collection of living snakes, geckos, lizards, spiders, turtles, and other reptiles. the museum itself was on the fourth floor in an office complex. at first we did not find the entry, as we expected something more like a ... museum-entry. the animals were interesting, but the museum itself actually would have been a bit too expensive in our opinion (65NOK, 6.5EUR), but luckily the entrance was included in our oslo pass. the next and last museum for this day was the vigeland museum. gustav vigeland was a famous sculptor, and the museum showed loads of his works, including sketches and miniature models he used for the original ones later. this "making of" was especially impressive, as most of his sculptures were. his sculpture are spread over the whole town of oslo. we can definitely recommend this museum. unfortunately the natural history museum already had closed, and since we were tired anyway from walking around all day, we decided to go home, go to bed early and make the most of our oslo pass, since it's valid until 12:00 the next day. we planned to go to the norwegian museum of science and technology, and maybe we'll visit the natural history museum too. we'll see.
