Museum of Oslo’s  main exhibition “OsLove” will guide you through the highlights of the history of Oslo. The focus is on the people who lived in the city and created the unique atmosphere of today.

“OsLove” features some of the finest models, paintings and photos from the museum’s collection. The city’s history is featured through digital storytelling, interviews and films.

Experience the history and learn about the fire that destroyed the city in 1624. You will also be introduced to the contrasts between the working class and the upper class in Christiania (which was the name of the city in a period before 1925).

Did you know that when the castle was built people thought it to be in the countryside? Or that orange was a popular color 200 years ago? Or that Oslo throughout the times has been influenced by immigrants?
