Bygdøynes Light, Oslo, Norway

Thanks to Andreas Köhler for this photo of a historic lantern at Bygdøynes on the west side of Oslo. The Norske Fyrliste does not include a light at this location, so this light (if it is active) is unofficial. Bygdøynes is the site of the Norwegian Maritime Museum, the Fram Museum for the famous polar exploration ship Fram, and the Kon-Tiki Museum for Thor Heyerdahl's explorations. One of these museums, most likely the Maritime Museum, probably manages the light. More information would be welcome!
