The Kon-tiki Museum - Review

Kon-Tiki is a raft that in 1947 carried Norwegian explorer and writer Thor Heyerdahl from South America to the Polynesian Islands. Heyerdahl undertook the journey to suggest an extraordinary idea – that South American peoples of pre-Columbian times could possibly have colonised Polynesia.

The raft is housed in this museum, which also houses vessels that Heyerdahl used in his subsequent trips – the reed boats Ra II (based on Egyptian sea-boat designs) and Tigris (used to sail the Indian Ocean). Other exhibits include:

  • The Library
  • An exhibit on Whale Sharks
  • A large number of Easter Island Artefacts including a 9.2 meter tall moai (stone statue)

  • Not the first time I've been here, but still find things out each visit. Took my seven year old granddaughter this time and she was fascinated by the story and the exhibits. Thor Heyerdahl and his companions were childhood heroes of mine and I find myself slipping back to the child who dreamed of joining them crossing the Pacific or the Arabian Seas. 'Borders I have never seen one. But I have heard they exist in the minds of some people. Borders I have never seen one. But I have heard they exist in the minds of some people.

  • Really amazing exhibits! I learned so much about the sailor Thor and his adventures. They have a great gift shop as well. Free with the Oslo Pass. There were exhibits, movies, artifacts, and more. There is truly something for everyone at this museum. It's also in close proximity to two others and the bus/ferry.

  • Nice place for an afternoon. Easy Access by bus, friendly staff. Worth a visit.

  • Its a small but an exciting museum full of interesting items. Even the boats the famous adventurer Thor Heyerdahl used

  • Kon-Tiki museum is a wonderful place to visit. There was the RAII a reed sailboat used to cross the Atlantic ocean from Safi in Morrocco to Barbardos using the equitorial current. During the journey they saw lots of sea creatures including whales and great white sharks, they cross the channel in 101 days.
