    Excellent small museum which is full of rare pieces of all kinds. First on other civilizations (Egyptians, Caribbean, Mexico...) then the Vikings and peoples of the North, including the Inuit and Sami (do not miss the small rooms specific to the Vikings after the religious Hall, they are very interesting and accessible only through a small door that seems closed at first glance). Interesting temporary exhibitions currently on LGBT in Oslo and a Turkish artist. Staff very friendly and helpful, ready to all explain/translate if needed. Great shop that offers quality souvenirs and (currently) the/coffee/chocolate free for visitors - much appreciated after the visit.

    I came here because of an interest in the Vikings, and was not disappointed. In the respect that one can be selective, this museum is well worth the visit. The Viking element is very interesting, as i...  more »

    There are some nice pieces of viking era but the museum is not so big. The regular adult ticket is also valid in the vikings ship museum in bygdøy and there is a bus right in front of the Rådhuset (30 to bygdøy)

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.
