Me and my boyfriend came here both being fascinated by all things Viking. Loved it. So interesting. We came in January so it was very quiet. It was quite small, but I do prefer that to big museums where you lose interest half way through....More

My Norwegian friends said not to get too excited. How wrong they were! This place is a superb example of Norwegian culture. As a resident of northern England (which was invaded by the Vikings 1000 years ago) i found it fascinating

This museum is absolutely worth a visit! The ships are incredible to see up close and I like that they have staircases and viewing areas where you can see the ships from above too. Aside from the ships, they have another whole wing of items...More

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.
