The Royal Collections

The Royal Collections are responsible for the Palace's cultural outreach activities, and for the preservation, registration and restauration of the many objects and artifacts in the collections. 


The Royal Palace in Oslo is open to the public every year from late June until the middle of August. The guided tour takes visitors through some of the most important and lovely rooms in the Palace. It is also possible to visit Oscarshall Summer Palace during the summer season. Oscarshall is located on the peninsula of Bygdøy just outside Oslo city centre, surrounded by a romantic park.


In Queen Sonja Art Stable there are exhibitions and events all year - just closing for the mounting of new exhibitions. Sometimes works by Norwegian artists are on show, while other exhibitions showcase art and artifacts from the Royal Collections.
