We had access to a car for this itinerary, although I'm sure it would be possible without one; perhaps with a bit more planning though. Pack a picnic lunch to enjoy in the park. If not, there are plenty of dining options around, including a café in Vigeland Park.
The Royal Palace gardens are only open in the summer, but a visit to the Royal Palace is a must-do, whatever the season.
Norway is an expensive country, so be prepared. Save money on things like meals by packing a picnic lunch, in order to enjoy the other sights without worry. Also, if you are planning to visit a few of the museums in Bygdøy, I believe a museum pass is available to save money.
This Oslo itinerary offers some fantastic things to do in Oslo with kids, filled with adventure and fun. It is a stunning city, perfectly located right on a fjord. Both modern, but also steeped in history. Therefore, visitors easily lose themselves in daring tales of voyages and exploration along the way. First, start the day by heading to any museum in the Bygdøy area (we chose the Fram Museum and it was packed with interesting exhibits). Then, enjoy a couple of hours at Vigeland Park. This park is home to the incredibly detailed sculptures by Gustav Vigeland. Your kids will love the playground here, while you can soak up some art and culture. Lastly, finish the day by exploring a bit of the city centre before dinner. Be sure not to miss seeing the spectacular Royal Palace at the top of an impressive rise. When hunger strikes, dinner at Olivia Aker Brygge with a view of the Oslo Fjord will top this day off right. It’s a fantastic way to end the day and reflect on the great experience in Oslo.
