    The Vikings are creepy and the combat suits that you can also taste and buy are great. I was looking in vain for German texts or guides. All a bit minimalist but oK. The outpost in the distance is an original replica of a Viking Village with real "residents" for that I would give 5 stars if I could forget the name (in Norwegian).

    Has all the information you need, info panels are in English too. As always the staff speak English too. Learned a few new things about 'vikings' too.  more »

    Some good exhibits but felt liked it lacked an identity: is it trying to be a viking museum, or an archeology museum? More like a cafe and viking tourist shop with some exhibits tacked on. Quite disappointing.

    A interesting and quite quiet museum. A good place to bring children, as there are loads of activities for children. The café is also very good, with local and historical food. You should try 'Kludderbrød'!

    Loved the museum! Gives some insight about the early ages of Stavanger. Be sure to visit the outdoor place as well in the south of Stavanger. I would have loved some more information about the Viking ages as well. The exhibition about this was somewhat small in my opinion.

    Interesting museum about the bronze age and the vikings from Rogaland. Several rune stones. Because it's oriented on local findings, the collection are not the big

    Interesting exhibitions and activities about Norwegian ancient and local history. Focus on Vikings. Café with waffles, coffee and easy dinner on Sundays. A small shop with Vikings effects and books. For adults and kids.

Where to stay in Stavanger

As with any Norwegian city, the high price of accommodations in Stavanger might be a bit of a shock. Luckily, the Norwegians have such a fondness for outdoor activities that most tourist destinations seem to be well served by several campsites in nearby areas. Rent a tent or a rustic cabin to appreciate Norway’s nature and cut costs. Alternatively, look for hotels in the city center around the Storhaug borough. Slightly outside of Stavanger lies the popular Sola Beach, where high-end hotels put you just steps from the sand.
