Infection control regulations at the Natural History Museum and Botanical Garden
It should be safe to visit the Natural History Museum and Botanical Garden, both for visitors and employees. Therefore, we kindly ask the following:
Register at the reception with name and contact information before exploring the museum and the café.
Stay at home if you have symptoms of coronavirus
It is important that you stay at home if you:
feel ill, or have symptoms of coronavirus
have been in contact with infected people
are in quarantine or isolation
Keep a safe distance
At the museum and the café, only a limited number of visitors are allowed at a time. This is to ensure that visitors can keep a safe distance to each other (minimum 2 meters).
At the exhibitions on the first and second floor, a maximum of 10 visitors are allowed at a time.
Hand Wash and hygiene
Remember to wash and disinfect your hands when you arrive at the museum, and during your visit. Hand disinfection is available at several locations at the museum, and at all our toilets.
As a precaution, toilets and other contact points are being cleaned more frequently.
Serving of food and beverages
Use contactless payment if you can. If there are several people waiting in line, keep a safe distance to others. At the café, a maximum of 15 visitors are allowed at a time.
There is a small cabin next to the museum, grillhytta, which is available for rent. Inside the cabin, a maximum of 10 visitors are allowed at a time. Visitors must wash or disinfect their hands and keep a safe distance to others.
Group visits from kindergartens, schools and others
We are offering exhibition tours for smaller groups. Due to infection control regulations, the group size cannot exceed 10 people. Tours must be booked in advance, and are arranged on Mondays only, when the museum is closed for other visitors. Contact our public outreach coordinator and museum pedagogue Geir Brokke to book a tour: Geir.firstname.lastname@example.org
We advise visitors against using public transport when travelling to the museum. Instead, we recommend walking or bicycling. If you are arriving by car, there are parking spots at the museum.
