  • In the museum you will find lot of boat model. You can see the development of the life vest. And exhibition pollution of the Ocean. 
  • I visited this museum as I got a deal to visit the 3 museums in the cluster with the Fram museum. I was practically alone, which was sad, as the place was fascinating! Being alone meant I played with ...  more »
  • Good museum, but really limited in content. Wasn't bad, but considering the building next door has a whole ship inside it, I was expecting more in this one.

  • Really cool museum of main thin of Norwegian people - Sea and it's ships. Great exhibition from first boats to big modern ships. You can touch and try everything. Great place must see!
  • The area outside the museum was really nice and clean. I liked the big boat
  • I was surprised at how fascinating I found the maritime museum to be. The exhibits effectively explore Norway's seafaring past, present, and future. Aside from the Viking Ship Museum, this was the most interesting stop on the island.
  • Nice museum for the shipping traditions of Norway and also their future. Great exhibits and nice views.
  • Zilion exhibits. Real nice museum. But be sure to book one day for this museum only
