Explore Oslo as a Tourist In Your Own City

Organized in Oslo Norway one Sunday every spring; the next ‘Tourist in your own city‘  (Turist i egen by) will be on April 21nd in 2013. If you meet up at Oslo City Hall from 10 o’clock you receive a free OsloPass which allows you to explore museums and attractions in Oslo at no cost on this particular day.

The weather is a challenge at times as it often is late in April, but if you don’t like the crowds then you might consider looking at bad weather as a good thing and still get out there to do some free sightseeing!

Pictures below are from The Vigeland Museum from a visit in 2010. The museum was built as studio and home for Gustav Vigeland the artist in the 1920’s and was opened to the public in 1947. Today the museum showcases an almost complete ollection of the artists works. The brief tour in Gustav Vigeland’s apartment is recommended thanks to the guide who is able to share interesting personal details about Vigeland making the experience more enjoyable. You’re not allowed to take pictures, but some pictures are available on their official site.
