Oslo Culture Night is back! Rejoice!

If I were to rate my top three things it would probably be:

1. Free stuff

2. Cultural stuff

3. Happenings where all of Oslo get together to create a great and free festival.

This year cultural euphoria hits town on friday 12th of september (tomorrow)! It’s finally time for the annual Oslo Culture Night.

Oslo Culture Night is a free festival with events spread all over town. It’s Norways biggest one-day festival, and this year they’ve got their biggest program ever. Experience a wide range of shows, activities and culinary… stuff… on 125 different locations.

Check out their amazing 39 page (!) program (in english) with events from all over town.

Take a course in cooking, watch an interesting debate, visit NRK, check out great concerts or learn martial artis.

We guarantee you that you’ll find something interesting. And if you don’t, then we’re sorry to inform you that you’re kind of a downer.

This Saturday you can visit a handfull of Oslo museums free of charge!

If you’re in town this weekend and you’ve already scheduled a museum day, then you’re in luck. This saturday The Norwegian Museum Association invites everyone to a free day at various museums. Here’s an overview of some of the museums that are open:

Norways Resistance Museum
Akershus festning, building 21
Norway was occupied by Germany for five years during the second World War, from 1940 to 1945. The museum portray the Resistance movement’s battle against the germans.

National Museum of Contemporary Art
Bankplassen 4
www.nasjonalmuseet.no
The museum is Norway’s national centre for modern art. There are permanent and temporary exhibitions of international and Norwegian artists. Perhaps the only museum in the world where visitors can leave behind bags and coats in a vault – the museum is located in the monumental 95-year-old former headquarters of the Norwegian National Bank.

Museum of Natural History
Sars’ gate 1
www.nhm.uio.no
Here you’ll find: Greenhouses, the Zoological Museum and the Geological Museum (with a full-sized T-rex) and the Botanical Gardens (see “Parklife” for info on the Gardens). Take the underground to Tøyen/Munch museet.

Nobel Peace Center

Norsk Folkemuseum
Museumsveien 10
www.norskfolkemuseum.no
Norway’s largest and oldest folk museum is an open-air collection with more than 150 houses transferred from other parts of the country. You can visit one of Norway’s few remaining medieval stave-churches, and talk to the nice guides dressed up like 18th century inhabitants. Especially worth a visit if you don’t have a chance to visit other parts of Norway. There are daily activities in the open air museum all summer.

Museum of Science and Technology
Kjelsåsveien 143
www.tekniskmuseum.no
