Tram lines 17 and 18 also stop at Forskningsparken.




Public parking is available at the Oslo Science Park (Forskningsparken), just southwest of Ole-Johan Dahl's building. However, due to the excellent public transport system in Oslo (and the fact that the Metro and Tram stops are closer than the parking), we strongly encourage people to arrive via public transportation.
