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.
