Recording Songs @ Popsenteret

Visiting the Pop Center / Popsenteret in Oslo is FUN if you understand the language.

It showcases Norwegian pop history from 1904 till today, with old memorabilia, instruments, and pictures on display.There are also videos running throughout the exhibition. As you can see from the pictures the light setting was flashy, and mostly neon colors used. We had the most fun recording two songs in one of the ‘studios’. Since both of us apparently are tone-deaf I won’t post the link to the MP3 here, but I uploaded the cover for one of the songs!

A fun and informative exhibition with opportunity to interact, as well as a staff that pointed us to the best parts of the attraction! I am thinking about going there again for one of their upcoming exhibitions. Unfortunately all the texts and exhibitions are in Norwegian. I’m not sure why as I think non-Norwegian could enjoy this attraction as much as us. There is a ‘time machine’ showcasing different eras with interactive posters, windows, and table settings that changed with the era, and for this part you don’t need to know Norwegian.
Cost: 90 NOK

My rating: ♥♥♥♥

The center is part of Schous cultural brewery, so when we were done sightseeing we headed to Schouskjelleren Mikrobryggeri (beer brewery) for some Pale Ale (the one with citrus that wasn’t brewed at Schous was much better). :-)

…It is great fun and could easily be a four star attraction, but it’s only fun that one time.
