  • 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).

  • The museum is small and does not take a great deal of time to go through. We had guide from one of the staff...she was horrid. I stopped counting "uummm", after 50 times in the first 3 minutes. I woul...  more »

  • Highly recommended for kids, they can obtain quiz to solve inside the museum, giant chess kids can play in the meantime parents take a pleasant coffee, interactive TVs and some viking dresses you can wear and record in the photocall. Thanks for the excellent attendance of the staff!
  • I really loved the Museum. Much information about Viking, their jewelry and all stuff like this. Friendly stuff and I only paid 10 NOK. When you are a student and also went to the petroleum museum before and show your receipt, you will get these nice discount.
  • 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'!
  • Very informative and a source of the Viking knowledge

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.
