There is a nice ferry that runs from the waterfront dock to Bygdoy Peninsula. Rick Stevens recommends this. He says it is a 10 min walk from the dock to the Viking Ship museum. Not even a 20 yr could do it in that time....More

Whether you're heading here because it's museum island or simply strolling through to look at the beautiful homes, this is a worthwhile detour. The batwing ferry to the island is free with the oslo pass. Last departure from the island at 1830...

We approached this neighborhood of Oslo by ferry from the city center. The island (peninsula, actually) boast parks, trails, restaurants, beautiful homes (including ambassadors' residences), and a number of museums, including the fascinating Norsk Volkemuseum of living history. Treat yourself. Pick a sunny day.

Was my favourite bit of Oslo. Very easily accessible by public transport (I think it's bus #30 to Bygdoy, from the main railway station bus stop area). It's the peninsula with all the cool viking museums and polar/marine museums... and also very very posh houses...More

There are the occasional villas for rent, but only long term. There are no hotels in Bygdoy. However, the bus nr 30 from downtown Oslo only takes 15-20 minutes to reach all the museums, of which there are many exiting ones... More
