This was among the best museums we have ever visited as a family, The history and the preservation effort is simply outstanding and a great tribute to the explorers.
Best reached by ferry from Oslo and combined with visits to the other two museums nearby and also the Viking Museum a short bus ride away (or the other way around as the ferry stops at both locations)

#8 of 108 Museums in Oslo
I have seen a lot of war and memorial museums around the world and this ranks right up there for intrigue, interesting facts, and a lot of "who knew?!!" facts about those tough and stoic Norwegians in the resistance.
This is one of the most interesting museums we have explored especially if one is interested in World War 11 history.

The Kistefos museum is a pleasant surprise, tucked away along a quiet stretch of river, punctuated by the waterfall—that is the 'fos' in Kistefos.
It is also an industrial museum - but the sculptures is what makes it worth to take the trip.

The Historical Museum Oslo 0.9 km away
#21 of 108 Museums in Oslo
All museums and a lot of attractions are either cheaper or free with it, and given the price of the city every little helps.
Taken in conjunction with the other big Viking age attraction that Oslo has to offer, the Viking Ship Museum, the Historical Museum's exhibits on the Vikings really do flesh out these amazing people.
