Tøyen Sightseeing Walk, Oslo

Tøyen sits in the center of Oslo, a popular and trendy locale that is one of the most ethnically diverse areas of Norway. Tøyen is also known and celebrated for its wonderful collection of cultural attractions. Among them is the Interkulturelt Museum, dedicated to celebrating and improving understanding of cultural diversity. Browse exhibits to learn about cultural traditions from all around the world. Galleri Map, a small gallery between Grønland and Tøyen is where you can see the works of contemporary Scandinavian artists. Experience more beautiful paintings at the Munch Museum, which houses over half of the painted works of Edvard Munch. Behind the museum is Tøyen Park which encompasses the University of Oslo Botanical Gardens, a wonderful place to relax among thousands of scented blooms. Also in the garden is possibly the oldest wooden building in greater Oslo. Another university building well worth visiting is the Natural History Museum. It encompasses the Mineralogical-Geological Museum and is reputed to have the country's most comprehensive natural history collection. Tour the Tøyen kirke, an early 20th-century church that is incorporated into a larger block rather than being a standalone building. Appreciate the beauty of the architecture, the stained glass windows and painted altarpiece.
