Norwegian Petroleum Museum
Although an oil industry museum may not seem like the most fun day out, this explanation of the industry that built modern Norway is packed with genuinely interesting facts, detailed 3D models, and relatable human stories of life on an oil rig. Children are especially well catered for, with lots of equipment to clamber on and interactive displays that explain the basics of oil exploration and extraction in an enjoyable way. The museum also addresses the environmental issues and debates them along with the future of the industry in a refreshingly honest and open way. The graffiti-laden kids playground out front is a must-see, for its made from recycled oil rig equipment.
