Two days in Oslo in early December: what should I see and do?

I have two days in Oslo December 3rd after a conference and am wondering what I should do. I want to spend it all in the city (no nature or hiking for me), so looking for urban things such as museums, art galleries, etc. Plus something very non-intellectual as I will be keen on that after days of discussion. Recommendations for vegetarian or vegetarian friendly places that I should be sure to eat at also very welcome. Any and all recommendations appreciated.

Travelling to Norway from UK tomorrow: Least worst currency option?

Going to Oslo, Norway tomorrow at short notice - what is the least worst option for getting Norwegian currency with the current terrible state of British sterling? Airport exchange will not accept pre-orders for collection due to market instability, usually a reasonable deal. Should I just draw cash on my debit card when I get to Oslo?

48 hours in Oslo, Norway

What should my husband and I absolutely not miss when we are in Oslo in a couple of weeks' time? We are staying three nights in the city: arriving Wednesday 12th August in the early evening and leaving Saturday 15th early afternoon. However, we have a day ticket to the Oya Festival on the Friday (the festival site does not open til 1pm though), so in terms of actual sightseeing time we have one evening, one whole day and a couple of half-days.

Travelling from Oslo to Paris--what shouldn't we miss?

Mrs. Hanoixan and I will be taking a trip from Oslo to Paris over a couple of weeks in August. We're already planning on seeing the Sognefjord, and tooling around the French countryside. There's a ton in the middle. What route would you suggest (we'll be taking trains where we can)? We like the road less travelled and beautiful places.
