We really enjoyed our trip to the Viking Ship Museum, what magnificent pieces of history. We were blown away by the sheer size of the ships and the craftsmanship that went into them for the period in history in which they were made.

The museum is simple in its design and not that big. The information about the ships and the artefacts is clearly presented and simple to follow.

If you are in Oslo you must visit this museum.

An interesting museum that contains Viking ships and artefacts from the Viking age. It's a bit out of town but can be reached easily by boat or bus. Close by to 2 or 3 other museums which are a short walk and can be done at the same time. Good view of Oslo also

Fascinating to see the ship close hand. It tells a story on how it was long ago and what might have happened.

The museum is based around vikingships. You can easily walk around the ships and read about the vikinghistory.
The videoexhibit in the main hall was a little disaponting.
