Docks right in the heart of the city centre. Hop on hop of bus outside the terminal is very expensive we learnt afterward there is a ferry near where ship dock to take you over to where all main museums are for much much cheaper. Loved Oslo would of liked a lot more time here or even an over night as so much to see and do. Don't miss the vigeland sculpture park!

Oslo is a decent city to visit. Oslo card is useful for transportation and museums. Oslo is a very walkable city. Fram museum and folk museum are recomended. Vigeland sculpture park is also excellent on a fine day

What a great city. Took the Ho-ho (book online and get a discount) and had a wander. Stopped at the palace to walk up the hill and see the guards. Great view back down the hill. Moved on to the longship museum after that - very atmospheric and definitely worth the visit. Loads of other stuff to do but just ran out of time. We will return one day 😀
