Home of Ida
The Natural History Museum in Oslo is where you can see the famous fossil known as "Ida", the oldest primate fossil known and the most complete fossil of an early primate.
The Botanical Garden and the museums within it are among Oslo's most popular attractions, with tourists and local visitors alike. The garden is especially beautiful in spring and summer, but you can learn and marvel all year round at NHM.
Nature's diversity is the object of the research at NHM. From Norway's largest natural history collections, we aim for a deeper understanding of how long time evolutionary and geological processes have shaped our world. Our National Centre of Biosystematics is internationally renowned. The Arctic is a main area of interest.
