The two almost complete ships here are amazing! Our group of four had already see Viking ships in Schleswig and Copenhagen. But these are in much better condition. The finely carved “ornamental” details were exquisite. Loved seeing the Norwegian Viking wagon after seeing the Danish...More

We walked to this museum in the rain from the Kon-Tiki Museum about a kilometre. When we got there, the Museum seemed a bit strange in that it looked like a church in the shape of a cross, which was at odds with what I...More

Museum was not as interesting as we thought it would be. There are artifacts of the Viking era including a replica of a ship and the discovered ruins of an actual ship. If you have limited time there are more interesting museums in Oslo.

There are three Viking ships here that were used to bury (probably rich people) people. The ships differ in design and in condition. One was used to bury rich ladies, this ship probably would have been swamped if it went to sea. Another ship was...More

This place is spare, almost to the point of being austere. Like it was built on a shoestring budget by people who didn't really want to do it, but were told they had to. There are the three Viking longboats, three wagons, and a few...More

Small, interesting museum presenting authentic artifacts of ninth century Viking life, including two well preserved ships, an elaborately carved wagon and items of clothing. A film projected onto walls, accompanied by music, effectively tells the story of why and how Vikings ventured over oceans in...More

Our tour guide got us there just before it opened and we had spectacular views and photos ops with no people there. The ships seem large, but as an ocean going vessel, the Vikings had to be hardy and brave. Many other displays of burial...More

A great look into viking history with the three big ships and other artifacts. Everything I thought I knew about the vikings was out the window once I visited this museum. The 5min video was worth a watch as well.

You might want to try emailing the museum (mailto:postmottak@khm.uio.no) but I’m afraid the soundtrack may have been recorded solely for the purpose of the animation and may not be made available.

The first ship was shifted there in 1926, and the final building was finished in 1956. As far as I know a new shifting, whch has been planned for many years now have been skipped for good
