Cinemateket is the place for film history and film art. They show both the big classics and lesser-known works from film history. 

 A large proportion of the performances are exclusive, which means that they both show unique movie copies that only they have access to and that they show movies that are not possible to be seen elsewhere.

Akershus Festning

Akershus Fortress is a great place to discover Oslo's history and enjoy a summer day. 

The building of Akershus Castle and Fortress was commenced in 1299 under king Håkon V. The medieval castle, which was completed in the 1300s, had a strategical location at the very end of the headland, and withstood a number of sieges throughout the ages. King Christian IV (1588-1648) had the castle modernised and converted into a Renaisssance castle and royal residence. 

Guided tours of the fortress are available to the public in summer, and start at the Fortress Visitor Centre.
