we just got back from Norway
This is what we did in Oslo buy the Oslo pass at the tourist information centre at the dock they give cruise passengers a discount.
We walked to town about 15 minutes strolling to the ferry over to Norwegian Folk Museum & Viking Ship Museum ~ Kon-Tiki and the Polar Ship Fram, Maritime Museum your pass includes admission to those museums as well as the ferry, buses & trams took the #30 bus from Fram museum to the Viking ship museum then the ferry back.
You can take the #12 tram to the sculpture park, the fort is right at the dock if you have time do that last
The next best thing is the HOHO bus it stops right at the port.
