The Viking Ship Museum - Review

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 Viking Ship Museum, Oslo Reviews

  • Very lovely experience. Decent admission fees (free for teenagers, 100 for grown ups; also includes admission to another museum). Lovely half day trip from Oslo; take the ferry and about 15 minutes later you arrive. A 15 minute stroll and you arrive at the vikingship museum. Different, original boats are on display, alongside various parts found in or around the ships. You can learn a bit about vikings and their culture (I was amazed to learn just how far they had travelled, and not just on sea, but also on rivers and on land routes). The most amazing part for me was the film show with 10 projectors, showing the life of viking warriors in various styles. Makes great use of the locale. And has just the right length.

  • It was really cool to see the longboats, but I feel like it was a bit "here us what we found" rather than an educational experience about long boats and Vikings. It could be so much more! Also, they have lockers outside for bags but everything inside is well fenced off or enclosed in glass... And there are so many security guards... Worth doing. Doesn't need more than 1 hour though.

  • Absolutely wonderful to see actual, preserved viking ships and relics. Great history and museum plaques are in English as well. Price not too bad. $10 per adult. A must see if you are in the area, as not many (if any) other places to see non replica viking ships.

  • Incredible. Absolutely amazing. Do not miss the chance to see the world's best-preserved Viking ships at a very reasonable price, and to see a lot of Viking-era objects you'd never thought you'd see - like sleights! The contextualization and educational value of this place is truly worth the visit. Cannot recommend enough!

  • I enjoyed this museum very much. It offers a great opportunity to look back to the past. The were several Viking ships in various stages of repairs. There also was a panoramic film shown on one of the walls. Nice gift shop. There were free lockers to store your bag while you were in the museum. The lockers were only big enough to fit a day pack.
