Surprisingly worthwhile
Aug 2020 • Family
Visited here whilst awaiting ferry to Bygdoy. Open 9-6 daily, except Saturday when it’s closed for weddings only.
Free entry. Amazing wall murals, tapestries and paintings in spacious rooms. One Edward Munch painting to see which was a bonus.
Beautiful views over waterfront.
Remember to look at wooden friezes on way in ... depict Viking folklore.

Frescos & Nobel
Jul 2020 • Couples
The Oslo City Hall does not look attractive outside but it is free to visit it. Inside there are many rooms with wonderful frescos. Interesting historical and mythical details. The grand main hall with its frescos is the place for Nobel Peace Prize festivities.

Good artwork & location of the annual presentation of the Nobel Peace Prize
Aug 2019
Oslo City Hall is a 10 minute walk from the cruise terminal where our cruise ship had docked, next to Akershus Fortress. Our interest was to see the location where The Nobel Peace Prize was awarded on 10 Dec every year. Definitely worth the visit if you are in Oslo. Free entry.

Amazing!! Must do!
Jul 2020 • Couples
We did a walking tour and the guide recommended we see city hall, even just for the artwork. Amazing!!! We were the only ones in there and spent so much time just starring at these amazing murals. To think world leaders stood where we were is quite surreal. Definitely go see city hall.

A true beauty on the inside

From the outside the city hall might look a bit run down but the inside left me speechless. There are beautiful murals on every wall! Definitely worth a visit. And the entrance is for free

An empty socialist building
Feb 2020 • Friends
Here it is nothing to see, except paintings that covers the roof and walls.
The staff is never present to help, and there is close to no information.

If you like Soviet-style public buildings, it could be an interesting architectural experience.

Of interest to architecture fans

Also of interest to those who like Norwegian folklore. Be sure to check online for the hourly carillon schedule- a nutty array of classical, folk & pop tunes— from Grieg to AC/DC
