"Ida" – The oldest complete primate skeleton in the world

Ida, Darwinius massilae, is the world’s oldest complete primate skeleton, and the most valuable object exhibited at The Natural History Museum of Oslo. She was bought by the museum in 2007, and presented to the world in 2009.

Ida can currently be seen in the exhibition "Stones and bones"

The Climate House opens in spring 2020

Image may contain: Architecture, House, Tree, Urban design, Building.The Climate House will be a new and exciting arena for communicating research on climate and environmental issues. Children, teenagers and their whole families will be able to learn more about what climate change means, to get to know the several solutions that exist and to get inspired towards action. From early morning until late at night, the Climate House will showcase research-based exhibitions, lectures, films and debates. 

In the outside areas around the house we will communicate weather and climate phenomena through play, activities and art installations. The exhibits inside are to provide an understanding of both the natural climate changes and the man-made ones.

Through active and sensory exhibitions, and relevant debates, we will explore solutions to the climate challenge. We aim to be a vital and relevant meeting place for climate issues, and to engage our visitors and the general public to contribute to a more sustainable future.

Future additions to the museum

Big changes are coming to the museum! In the next few years, two buildings will be ready with new exhibits for visitors. In addition, we are planning to build a brand new green house in the future. Here you can read about the new buildings and our upcoming exhibits.
