  • Frustratingly curated. Objects without dates or attributes. You could walk past the only complete viking helmet ever found without knowing what it was, if you had not done your homework. Odd juxtaposition of contemporary craft art with the historical objects without much explanation. The medieval collection is the exception: intriguing church art well displayed.

  • I loved the museum. It's full of interesting things and I loved that it's all separated by period or places. There is plenty to see so it's best to go with time to get the most out of every detail.

  • All aspects of history highlighted. Treasure room with finds from all over Norway. Ok exhibition on viking daily life. Nice pieces from medieval times.

  • A really well done museum with great history of Norway, including the Vikings and the Middle Ages

  • There are some nice pieces of viking era but the museum is not so big. The regular adult ticket is also valid in the vikings ship museum in bygdøy and there is a bus right in front of the Rådhuset (30 to bygdøy)
