Interesting architecture
May 2020
Adjacent to a park on Karl Johans Gate. Interesting looking building offering free tours. Unfortunately we didn't have the spare time to go inside. Other reviews say it is well worth it.

Beautiful building
Mar 2020 • Friends
This a stunning building right in the centre of Oslo - its doubtful that you'll miss it, buts worth taking the extra 10 mintues to take a good look. We learnt some of the history of the building.on our walking tour, which was great.

Not that hard to find
Dec 2019 • Family
We were not fortunate to get a tour of the place. Our guide told us that December has no availability for those things. Too bad. We ended up taking photo shots of the beautiful exterior of the building . But take note that sunlight is only from 10am-2 Pm . That depends on what way you want those pictures taken. Just located on Karl Johan gate so hard to miss.

FREE GUIDED TOUR DAILY
Nov 2019
We joined the English speaking tour at 11.30am which beleive run twice daily ay weekends - need to get there about 30 mins before becuase they strictly limit it to 30 adults maximum. After the complusory securioty check and leaving coats/bags behind we enjotyed a 40 min tour of the main lobby, both chambers and an ante-room. The guide was amusing and informative so the time passed very quickly. Chance to sit in the seats in the now defunct 2nd chamber and other selfie opportunities elsewhere.

Interesting and funny tour
Nov 2019
Be half an hour early before the free English tour or you won't get a space. One is at 10.00 and the other at 11.30 on Saturdays. The guide was really funny, you have to go through security as you go in. The guide don't only tell you about historical facts but also his opinion as a layman and some funny anecdotes. The tour lasts about 45 mins and security but 20 mins for everyone to get through. Kids will enjoy it too.

The place of power!
Oct 2019
This is the place of power in Norway. It's very nice to take a tour here, to get a history lecture, and to see how the government in Norway works. I would very much recommend a visit here.

Only saw it from the outside but worth walking around as it's a beautiful building. In a location with lots of other sights to see.

Protestors Focal Point
Oct 2019
It's hard to get near the building when throngs of people are there beating drums and complaining that they are not paid enough. The protestors blocked the streets and were loud and pushy.
