One of most delightful, romantic two-wheel rides in Oslo. Lush woods, park-like countryside, view of the sea, swimming areas, historic buildings and the royal cows are some of the sights to see along the way. Arrive from Aker Brygge via the 3-km...more

This is the Museum Island and a part of Oslo image! Should be visited and a great source of Museums in one place. We took a boat to go there and a bus to return to the city. Great trip for almost a whole day!...More
We came here for the museums (Viking Ship, Folk Art) but really enjoyed the walk around the neighborhoods too. Very quiet. Homes are large, traditional, apparently wealthy without being in-your-face. Lovely area.
We were easily able to take a bus over to the peninsula, right to the door of the Norwegian Museum of Cultural History. From there it was a short walk to the Viking Ship Museum. We then walked about 15 minutes to the Kon-Tiki and...More
This whole peninsula is packed with museums and some of the most beautiful houses anywhere. Many embassies are located here. Enjoy the museums, walk the streets and then walk along the waterfront for some relaxation and great views of the city. The ferry boat is...More
We drove round this peninsula on a cold grey day and recognise we did not see it at its best. On a sunny day it would look much better, but even so it was not quite as picturesque as we had hoped with more unremarkable...More
We cycled here from Frogmer sculpture park using bikes hired via the OBOS bysykkel website app. Very easy to get to, lovely peaceful roads and very interesting big houses, and beautiful beaches. Also many museums, although we didnt visit them on this occasion. We got...More

The information that you have about the ferry ride to Bygdoy Peninsula is true. The last ferry will operate this year on October 14th. So if you are traveling to Oslo after that, you’ll not be able to take the ferry. But you should be able to take the city bus from the city center which is a very convenient way to reach out at all the unique museums in the Bygdoy peninsula. The Oslo pass is fantastic and includes all means of public transport within Oslo. You can get the information on all the buses and trams at the Oslo Visitor Center at the central train station.

It is not very easy to plan a trip to Bygdøy in December if you want a warm day. Just now nov/dec the temp can be from - 5 to + 5 degrees. But put on nice, warm cloths, don't forget head and hands.The two next saturdays there will be x-mas marked at the Folkmuseum and is very nice to visit. Sometimes it have been snowfall and it is cosy. It is possibel to buy warm food and x-mas drink. It is also a café where the museum shop is.
The other museums at the peninsula are not very far to walk, but I would recommend one at the time. Especially if you come to the christmas marked.
The Folkmuseum shows you our countryside from "the old tmes". The outdoor museum is very interesting. Have a ni ce trip!

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, so staying at a hotel in Bygdøy is not really necessary. Do you want to stay fairly close? Try Gabelshus hotel, close to Frogner church, very central and very good. Look it up, you will like it. You can with ease walk to the museums within 1/2 hour and hope for a sunny day. Very pleasant surroundings, passing the King of Norway's farm, then enter the Norwegian Folkmuseum from the rear, very close to its very first exhibit, Gol stavechurch from year 1200 (approx), moved there in 1885 in what has become the world's first open air museum. You could easily spend a day there, but are only a 5 minutes walk away from the Viking ship museum
