Nice to know before your visit
The first you encounter in front of the museum is a huge, black submarine on land. The museum is located in the large, red brick building. The entrance is situated on the centre of the building, right next to the submarine. There is an almost threshold-free entrance to the museum. The door is quite heavy, and has no button for automatic opening. To the right of the door is a call button that connects to the museum's switchboard. You can also contact us on +47 3303 1630 for assistance.
In the museum's reception on the third floor (fourth in Norwegian), you will find the museum's hosts. Just get in touch if you have any questions. It is also possible to send an email to email@example.com if you have any questions ahead of the visit.
There is a large, graveled parking lot outside the museum, offering free parking.
We have free admission for escorts.
Guide dogs and assistance dogs are welcome. We would be grateful if you let the reception know that you have a dog with you.
Ask at the reception if you would like to borrow a wheelchair.
Due to the design of the building, wheelchair users must come to the museum with escort. In the event of an evacuation, the escort must stay with the holder of the wheelchair until the fire service evacuates the person concerned.
Cloakroom and storage
In the stairwell on the third floor, you can leave your pram or your weelchair, if appliccable. It is not allowed to bring large bags, bags or sacks into the exhibitions. There are lockers in the cloakroom, and you're free to borrow a coin at the reception to lock them. It is also possible to leave bags at the reception.
Toilets and changing tables
On the third floor there are several toilets including a disabled toilet and changing table. You reach the toilets via lift or stairs.
