Yesterday I posted a few shots from the Botanical Garden in Oslo. The Botanical Garden is a part of the Natural History Museum, that also includes the Zoological and Geological exhibitions. Here are some shots of different kinds of buildings that are found in this beautiful museum area.
1. A smaller building: the gazebo at the Great-granny’s garden:
2. The path leading directly to the ticket office and the museum shop for the geological and zoological exhibitions. The building to the left holds the zoological exhibitions and is called the Robert Collett House, and was built in the period 1904-1908. Robert Collett (1842-1913) was a Norwegian zoologist. He was a curator and later director of the zoological museum. The building to the right holds the geological exhibitions (with exiting dinosaurs in it) and is called the W. C. Brøgger House, and was built between 1911 and 1917 W. C. Brøgger (1851-1940) was a Norwegian geologist and first dean of the University of Oslo.
3. Another shot of the Robert Collett House
4. In the middle of the Botanical Garden is the old Tøyen Manor House belonging to the Tøyen estate. The main wing of the manor is probably the oldest wooden building in the Oslo and Akershus region, and dates back to 1679.
5. Another view of the Tøyen Manor House. This is from the courtyard where there is a café today.
6. And old farm building belonging to the Tøyen estate. Now I’m sure it holds tool and stuff for the gardeners in the Botanical garden.
