What i think:
I like this museum. Im here every year to check out the temporary exhibitions and to see the same thing all over again. Everything from some of the devices used on some oil platforms to old telephone switchboards are located here. Really worth a visit if you have the time. The fastest way is the Train, but its much cheaper to use other forms of transportation.
Admission 80kr (12USD). 40kr for Students.
To get here: Take the Local Train to Kjelsås. You will see a big red building from here, walk towards it
