4 Preserved and presented Viking ship burials. You can get right up close to (almost) a thousand year old ship. See artefacts that we’re buried with them. There are a couple of very informative films and a mesmerising presentation over one of the boats. Everyone...More

The museum is not big, which is nice, you get to see everything carefully. It’s quite unique, the ships are really nice to see in real life. Also you should see the short movie that plays every 15 minutes there, it explains the history of...More

It's amazing to see real viking ships in such well preserved condition! There are three such ships. You can also see other artifacts e.g. things that were found in the ships, the hulls, etc.

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
