8 free events and activities to try in Oslo


Norway’s sophisticated capital of Oslo conjures images of stunning architecture, a vibrant culinary scene and Viking museums, but it’s often thought of as being an expensive city to visit.

However, if you’re heading to Norway on an Arctic expedition, it would be an incredible shame to miss out on what Oslo has to offer. That’s why we’ve put together some of the top free activities in Oslo for the budget conscious traveller.

1. Marvel at the futuristic Oslo Opera House

Home to the Norwegian National Opera and Ballet, the Oslo Opera House is truly an architectural spectacle to behold. Several art projects were commissioned for the interior and exterior of the Opera House. The most notable is She Lies, a sculpture constructed of stainless steel and glass panels by Monica Bonvicini. It is permanently installed on a concrete platform in the fjord adjacent to Opera House and floats on the water moving in response to tides and wind to create an ever-changing face to viewers.  Sitting on the bank of the Oslofjord, the building appears to rise out of the water like a small iceberg, its angular lines enabling visitors to walk up to the roof for a great view of the fjord and the rest of the city.

2. Peruse the collection at the Nasjonalgalleriet

Norway’s largest public collection of sculptures and paintings offers free entry on Thursdays, and houses a range of incredible artworks, including ‘The Scream’ by Edvard Munch.
