  • If you buy the Viking Ship museum ticket, you can use it to also come here. We didn't have much time (20mins.) so we went through very quickly. It is a small museum, but worth going to check out. It i...  more »
  • I didn't think it was anything special. A museum like many others. The ticket to enter also in the Viking Museum or vice versa.

  • The ticket gives access to this museum as well as the Viking Museum, so not bad for the price. I enjoyed the exhibits, especially that linked to the history of the region's habitation and the different Inuit groups. Not an overwhelming exhibit and a pleasant few hours spent considering the peculiarities of culture and history.
  • A great spot to visit but not nearly as impressive as the national gallery right next door. This is more of a continuation of the Viking museum on the peninsula and in fact they sell combo tickets and are both affiliated with the University. What is surprising was the Asian collection which had some interesting gems. Great if you're extremely interested in Viking history.
  • Plenty of exhibits however some are outside so bring warming layers. The place is huge and if you want to can probably spend a good 3-4 hours just looking at stuff not including reading plaques.
  • My dear friends this historical museum is very beautifull eyesighted for our Asian egiption African art history very beautifull look for all people hear are many people s enjoyed with there experience thank you
  • Went with the sole purpose of finding out about the Viking and Norwegian history and was not disappointed. Great exhibition and plenty of explanations. I liked that it is essentially time based. Also saw the Arctic exhibition. But the best thing is that entry to this museum is linked to entry to the Viking Ship museum, and that is fantastic!
