Easy to get to by ferry (or longer, by bus), Bygdoy's attractions include a must-see Viking ship museum and Thor Heyerdahl's Kon-Tiki museum. Be prepared for a good deal of walking, though.

The peninsula is mostly known for its several museums which people visit very often when in Oslo. The area itself and the village is also nice to visit and walk around. Grab a little time at the beach when being there!

Simply amazing!!! It´s a must if you visit Oslo. From my point of view there are three great museums, maybe the best in Oslo: Viking ship museum, Fram Polar Museum and Kon-tiki. My advice: take the ferry #91 from Oslo to Bygdoy, it´s really easy to buy tickets at the port and it leaves every 20 minutes. You will enjoy... More

Lots of museums to see, you can get there I think every 15 - 30 min by bus or ferry (both included in the Oslo Pass). There is a small beach next to the ferry stop. There will be some wind there because, well... it's Norway, but there aren't a lot of beaches in Oslo ;-) You can also walk... More

Bigdøy is easily accessible by boat or bus and contains high quality museums. After several visits over the years, we particularly enjoy the Viking ship museum and the Folk Museum tough other museums are also excellent. Bigdøy is the kind of place where you need to spend two days to enjoy all it offers.

With all the museums in one area, you'll need to pace yourself. I chose the folk museum because I have always wanted to see a Stave Church, and the Viking Museum. There is also the Fram ship and the Kon Tiki.

We spent 5 hours wandering from one museum to the next one. Eating and drinking. Liking (Kon Tiki and the Viking ship) or being indifferent (in Fram and Folk). Come by sea ang return by bus. As it was a rainy morning we come by a sightseeing bus from the Central Railway Station (NOK 250).

My husband and I took the hop on hop off bus in Oslo from the cruise port. Great museum island. Particularly liked the holocaust museum which is a little known building on the island. Interesting interpretations.

Bygdoy (tough to pronounce) but a wonderful place with lots to see-it's about 15 minutes by ferry from downtown Oslo (You should by an Oslo Pass if you are going to be in Oslo for even a few days--the pass allows you to use the wonderful transport system without worrying about having the right change). There are several museums worth... More

Remember to bring your swim gear when you visit Oslo next time. There are lots of small local beaches, but the easiest for access from central Oslo is the beaches along the west coast and the southern tip of Bygdøy. Just take the Nr. 30 Bus (Bygdøy) from the Central Station (and along the route through the centre of Oslo)... More
