The Viking Ship Museum and Historical Museum Admission Ticket
From US$11.99
Low Price Guarantee
Step back in time with a visit to the Viking Ship Museum, where you’ll see three ships over 1,000 years old. The vessels and their contents were well preserved thanks to their status as burial ships. Visitors can admire grave goods ranging from everyday objects to elaborate silks and sleighs. The Museum features a film that follows a Viking voyage, an audio guide for smartphones, and occasional special activities.
What to Expect
Visit: Viking Ship Museum, Oslo, Eastern Norway

Do not miss the chance to stand in front of the three best-preserved Viking Ships in the world! These ships were used to sail the Norwegian fjords and afterwards they were used as burial ships. Admire the details of ships and the objects found in the ships along with the skeletons of those buried with the ships. Take a look at the four mystic dragon heads!

See the new film that is shown regularly on the walls and roof of one of the museum wings. This experience-film follows the entire trip of one Viking Ship. Find the perfect spot so you do not miss any of the details of the film.

The museum has free brochures in several languages, and an audio guide for smartphones and tablets which can be downloaded free of charge. There are activities for children and adults from time to time, check the upcoming events in the museum's page.

A "Must See" in Oslo ...

This is not a big museum but its collection is nothing less than awesome. Don't miss it if you have time. The biggest hurdle is to get there but plenty of buses, taxis and a water shuttle are options.

This is definitely worth seeing. There are two restored ships and one as it was found. If you're interested in the Vikings, you'll be even more interested when you see the actual vessels they used, so small and so beautifully designed. Loved it.
