Wow. It is hard to put into words how superb this museum is. Viking ships to see. Viking grave goods to see. A fabulous video which runs every 15 minutes which covers 3 walls and the ceiling. I watched it twice! You are encouraged to...More

Amazing to see the Viking ships, they are beautifully detailed and preserved. The sleds, carts, and fabrics are wonderfully decorated and preserved. It was great to see these items in person and have a glimpse into this part of the Viking history. I would recommend...More

This is a small museum, but very interesting and with good quality information. It was crowded on our visit as there was a large cruise ship in port. There are three ships on display, which shows clearly the skills of the Viking ship builders.

Yes they are real ships preserved from the Viking age. Need I say more? It is a fascinating! Go early as it is a small museum & is on everyone’s list, it gets crowded fast.

It is difficult to believe that these ships once sailed the seas and then were used as burial chambers a millennium ago. The Oseberg ship was decorated with detailed carvings and the parts that have been reconstructed have been done brilliantly by 21st century craftsmen....More

Be amazed at the superb restoration of a number of longboats which have been buried for centuries. It is a well designed museum which doesn’t overload you with exhibits and text

This is the Place to Visit if you want to See Original VIKING Ships. Its a Small Museum but it has Real Viking Ships and a Pretty Good movie detailing the Viking Story.

The excavated boats stir the imagination. Stairways allow visitors a view from above. Allow about an hour to inspect the artifacts. There is a picnic area and a stand selling hot dogs and waffles outside. Included in the Oslo Pass, which is a good deal...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.

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
