What people are saying:

The Viking, a phrase that runs through Nordic history, is a evocative one. The Vikings have left their ubiquitous trails on the streets of Norway: exaggerated helmets, cute fridge stickers, and cartoon versions of souvenirs. The Norwegians have also built the museum to show off their special history. The Viking Ship Museum is one of the most popular tourist attractions on the Bigg Peninsula. The museum exhibits are all found in the viking tombs of the Oslo fjords, which show the largest viking ships - the Osberg, the Gocasta and the Duna - built in the 9th century and salvaged from the Oslo fjords at the end of the 19th and early 20th centuries. In addition, there are exhibitions of cloth, furniture and living goods of the time, which give a comprehensive picture of the Vikings. The more famous Oseberg, the ship's owner, is the ninth-century queen of Osa, so femininely elegant decorations and carvings, even after centuries, can clearly see the hull of the fine wood carvings. Another well-preserved is the Gokstad, a rather large pirate ship, presumably owned by the 9th-century pirate leaders, with elegance and slender lines that are fast, long-lasting, and well-drained, that dominated the North Sea and Atlantic Oceans in those days. Ticket price: Viking Boat Museum and History Museum combined ticket 120 NOK Traffic Raider: Bus: 30; Steamboat Tips: 1 in front of the Town Hall from April to October The museum consists mainly of two sections of the Viking Ship Hall and the Boatyard, which are the site for archaeological work. During the peak seasons, weekends and public holidays in May, June and September, a one-day guided tour is provided. 2. At the dock, you can board merchant ships full of cargo and warships armed with weapons. Also, you can wear Viking costumes, disguise as pirates, and imagine traveling back to the Viking era. 3. The museum offers you an opportunity to sail from the Museum Harbor. That is, you will be able to experience for yourself what it feels like to be on a Viking ship. 4. There is no Chinese voice service at present in the museum 5. One ticket for two: You can visit the History Museum with the same ticket in 48 hours

    The museum is small, less than 45mn to visit. Very nice reconstruction of the ships. Two small rooms with video animation and an exhibition of Viking artefacts. Interesting visit even if the entrance ...
