    A very interesting place. Here you can learn about the history of the Vikings, their contribution to the development of the city. You can even try on the imitation of ancient Viking garb.

    Here are mostly virituelt and it is informative. You go between 9 drives and get the story on the ear and see small video clips on the wall. A little confusing when the sound on the ear does not quite correspond with the videos you press on. But definitely worth a visit when it also does not take that long.

    Private museum (in the sense of the Central Museum of Stavanger has nothing), a small, set in a private wooden house. In the Museum you can learn about the history and culture of the Vikings. There are no artifacts, but all very interesting and interactively arranged. There is a gift shop.

    Way to expensive for the offered information. 20 min of Video material. Bad german translation.

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.
