Containing some of the world’s most well preserved Viking artefacts, this museum mainly exhibits Viking ships from Gokstad, Oseberg and Tune. The magnificent vessels, built in the 9th century, were used for both ocean crossings and burial rituals. Of great interest are the gifts given to the deceased. Also on display are sledges, beds, wood carvings, grave goods and buckets. The main attraction here is the Oseberg Ship, excavated from a burial mound in Tonsberg. The museum may look small, but it’s packed a lot of goodies into a very small space. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Oslo Itinerary 2 Days.

  • The museum was pretty cool, it has about 3 viking ships, including old items which the vikings probably used for a living. The museum isn't that big, so you won't spend more than 30 minutes in there. Still a nice place to visit!

  • Somewhat small, but very interesting. A lot of effort is made to explain the history of the ships and what their purpose was. Been here as a kid and happily returned 15 years later. Free storage of baggage in lockers, as larger backpacks are not allowed.

  • Small museum that shows some fantastic artifacts from the Viking age. It contains all three ships found so far from this age in Norway. Two have been restored to an amazing good condition (on the outside at least). A ticket here also gives 48 hour access to the historical museum downtown.

  • Incredibly serene and beautiful. The ships are restored and laid out as though they sailed in. The exhibits are well organised and the information is very comprehensive. For me the projected video of the Viking raid and ship burial is jaw dropping. Such an incredible layout and building. Very much recommended for anyone with an interest in Viking history.

  • impressive ships, nice visuals/projections on the walls telling the story of the ship. also a lot of small decorations and utility things, with beautiful ornaments and so on. not so big, but cosy.
