Popsenteret is Norway`s capital-based interactive museum of popular music. Our mission is to exhibit the vast history of Norwegian popular music and culture, with a particular focus on Oslo and its surrounding regions.

The center makes use of cutting-edge audio-visual technology, amongst other things inviting guests to record in our studios, mix their own tracks and undertake album-cover photo shoots. Re-record famous songs by artists such as A-ha and make it your own.  We also display some of the most sought-after and rare Norwegian music memorabilia spanning more than 100 years of popular music and pop-culture. Popsenteret is a must-visit for music fans of all ages.

English signage and subtitles throughout the exhibition. 

A pocket guide will assist you on your journey.

The recordings and pictures you produce at Popsenteret, once mixed and edited, are downloadable from our website www.popsenteret.no, under the tab ‘MIN SIDE’, as .mp3 and .jpg-files for you to keep. This is included in your entrance fee.

In our museum shop you`ll find a wide selection of unique and limited edition products, including books, posters, T-shirts and buttons related to the museum's collection and current exhibitions.


The Grünerløkka area is a pulsating part of the trendy Oslo, and is full of cool cafés, restaurants and bars. Take a stroll up to Olav Ryes plass via Thorvald Meyersgate or idyllic Markveien with all its odd shops and local merchants,
