The Oslo Pass is an advantage card which gives free entry to museums, free public transport and many other discounts and offers.
The app "Oslo Pass - Official City Card" is available for Iphone and Android.
You have to be connected to the internet when you buy the pass and when you activate it, but you don't need to be online to use it. NOTE: Your phone must be online once every morning before using the pass to ensure that the control code for the transport ticket is updated.
Types of passes
You can buy the Oslo Pass for 24, 48 or 72 hours, for children, adults or seniors.
You can buy more than one pass on the same phone or tablet.
Please note that if you purchase several tickets on the same device, you will need to travel and access museums and attractions together. The tickets need to be scanned at the entrance of each museum and where there is a control on board on public transport.
The information and instructions in the app are in English.
Price and payment
Downloading the app is free, you don't pay anything until you buy an Oslo Pass.
You pay with a Visa/credit card by entering card details.
There is a discounted price for children (under 16) and seniors (67+). See Oslo Pass prices.
Time of purchase vs time of activation
You can buy the pass in advance, and activate it after arriving in Oslo.
That means you don't have to activate the pass until the first time you want to use it, e.g. to enter a bus or a museum. The app will then start a countdown from 24/48/72 hours, so you can always see how much longer your pass is valid.
