All day

Norway as a nation has been a host to the Olympic Games twice. In the Norwegian Olympic Museum you can learn more about the similarities and the differences between these.  

Norway has hosted the Olympic Winter Games twice: in Oslo in 1952 and in Lillehammer in 1994. The Games were a success, and the cities received a long-awaited boost.
