Conveniently picked up from the office right in front of the central station. Staff very kind! I used it for transportation (mostly trams) Munch museum and restaurant discounts. It is really worth it if you think that the ticket valid for only one hour costs almost 4 eur. I bought the 48h. Highly recommended!

Honestly worth every penny, public transport is very expensive for tourists and all of the museum's are very pricey, the pass saved us SO much money and took pressure off in that regard. So handy!

Activity that is well worth getting as it allows access to museums, free public transport as well as other promotional discounts.

Very convenient and advantageous pass! We did the 24 hour one. Highly recommended.

You can easily travel around Oslo and visit museums.
