  • The ticket for the Viking Ship Museum is also valid for this museum. Although not as trendy as the other museums in Oslo, it is very interesting for anyone who likes history. It is possible to appreci...  more »
  • I went to the Museum to see the Viking exhibition. It is not very large but is well organized: topics are addressed as agriculture, the gods, weapons, etc, then one comes out with a ballot box printing. I understand that it is the Museum of history of Norway, but the Viking exhibition there or a poster in English or other language, so one will understand things starting to imagine the use of artifacts or drawings. That would be the only point which would propose to improve the business. Then there are other exhibitions such as the cultures of the Arctic (very interesting), and a few small collections of Egyptian, Rome and Greece, Norway, the Norwegian Bank, and a larger America, especially Central and Northern.

  • We were there with four children 6-13 years and came by every room. Best we liked the middle ages and the viking age, but it was very much exciting to watch from around the world. It was both mummies from Egypt, costumes from China, Viking swords, stair decoration from Japan and a great litter I think was from China, plus very much more! The building itself is from 1902 and exciting in itself. It is built in the classic Art Nouveau style, and has many beautiful details. Owls show up both of the doors and on the floor.
