    We actually visited this place "accidentally" - thought it was the Viking Ship Museum. Overall, it had valuable info and exhibits- but probably more oriented to locals. We were in and out in 20 minute...  more »

    It was a very nice museum. Lots of good information on the maritime history for Norway and the vikings too. Lots of things to see, plenty of exhibits. It was very nice. A few hours worth of time.  more »

    Interesting insight into Norway's rich maritime history and the craft of ship building. Their 5 screen presentation of the coastal life was awfully aged though, both the editing (esp. music) and the technical setup.

    It seemed like a really nice museum, but we were in a rush, and it didn't captivate me like the museums beside it. Worth a visit if you have time.

    The Museum. Is very busy and it was hard at times to get to read all the displayed information and treasures. However don't let that put you off. The Kontiki is well preserved and it is staggering to see how amazing the journey must have been.

    I wish I could left more time to this one! much big then the Fram museum nearby, and no less fun! and also very nice architecture the build itself, a lot of hidden corners with very nice view to the water! and covered by the Oslo pass, totally worth to go.

    Fantastic museum with amazing handmade models of ships, interactive exhibits (even a VR experience), and plenty of English in the exhibits.

Where to stay in Oslo

A majority of Oslo's hotels and smaller accommodations cluster along Karl Johans Gate, the city's main drag connecting many of its downtown attractions. If you want something a bit more colorful than the average hotel, consider one of the many bed and breakfasts that have been cropping up in recent years. To escape the crowded streets, but still be walking distance from major sights, stay in the Frogner or Majorstuen neighborhoods near the royal palace. As you can probably guess, lodging is quite expensive in this European capital.
