Called the museum island for a very good reason, you could easily spend two days here. If museums aren't your thing there are also some rather gorgeous beaches and a forest/woodland walk.

Easy to access by number 30 bus from Central Station or by ferry from pier 3 (transport included in Oslo Pass),this suburb is home to lots of museums and also absolutely delightful family surburbia.All houses had unique features,gabled rooves,dormer windows,stylised balconies...made the walks from museum to museum very interesting.

Take the boat 91 to get here from City hall. You can then easily see the Norwegian folk museum, Viking ship museum, maritime museum, Kon-Tiki museum, and the Fram polar ship museum. It is all walkable and count on 1/2 to a whole day to see all.

Buy Oslo pass first and you pretty much have everything covered. Take bus 30 outside Oslo central station and will drop you right outside the museums. My favourites are #1 Folk Museum, #2 Fram Museum and #3 Viking Musuem. Allocate at least 2.5 hours to the folk museum, starting with the outdoor displays first, especially the Stave Church from Gol... More

What a beautiful place! And there is so much to see. I only made it to the Viking Ship Museum and the Norway Folk Museum, so I would love to go again. I took the ferry. It first takes you to the dock closest to the Viking Ship Museum and the Norwegian Folk Museum. Then it continues to the dock... More

You can either take the ferry or the bus to Bygdoy Peninsula but no matter how you get there it is worth the trip. We took the ferry out to the peninsula and the bus back. The ferry offers great views of Oslo and the Fort and the many boats in the harbor, and it is the best way to... More

The Bygdoy peninsula home to many of the museums we wanted to visit in Oslo. The Folk Museum, Viking Ship Museum, Kontiki Museum, Fram Museum are all located here. That is the reason we went there. You can take a water taxi or bus #30 to the peninsula. There was a lot of homes with interesting architecture there as well.

Pleasant ferry trip as access. Museums were very interesting. I would say the Fram Polar Ship Museum was our favorite and most memorable.

We used our Oslo card to visit all the museums in this area. First the open air which is a collection of buildings from all over Norway representing various eras. Second the Viking museum where we saw various Viking ships etc in various levels of decay. Next the Kon Tiki where we saw the raft, another raft, learned the history... More

Fanatastic. Go see more than the outdoor buildings -- all the indoor museum space is also excellent.
