Great way to see Oslo! Museums were awesome and easy to navigate with the help of this pass. Even when taking the transit trams and buses. We didn’t have any problems coming in and out in all of the museums. It eas quick and east. The only challenge was planning your day to day tour since you only have so much to do in a day. We got the 2-day pass and we wish we got the 3-day but it’s all good. Will do this again in Stockholm. Thank you!

Some of the puzzles were quite tricky, but they were all solvable. To compensate, there were sometimes easier puzzles. It was very good that you could easily get to the next place with the help of Google Maps. The pictures of the next puzzle locations were also helpful. All in all a successful game for the whole family. We'll definitely play it again in another city if we get a chance.

As a senior I was only able to really get the most out of this beautiful city in three days. Also because you can also visit less crowded museums such as the educational and fun Technik Museum on the edge of the city.

Everything went well and I was happy that I had my pass. It made entrances to museums and transportation very easy.

Estupendo si quieres visitar muchos museos y ver la ciudad a fondo.
