Incredible to see the 3 Viking ships. Very scenic bus journey from central station, especially in the snow.

This peninsula hosts several very nice museums that happen to all be included on the Oslo Pass. We visited the Viking Ship museum, the Kontiki museum, the Maritime Museum and the Fram museum. All are worthwhile to visit and the Fram museum, especially has a lot of details of the expedition.

Went there in early Jan 2015 - some great views but really quite quiet and somewhat boring. Lots of ship musea, mostly worth spending 10mins in!

Went to this place by ferry from City Centre. Visited 1-2 museums but then again returned to the peninsula in cycle. This time took off roads and it was simply paradise!

This is truly a paradise for a tourist. Only a few kilometers from the center of Oslo you find nature, the folk museum, viking ships, the Kon-Tiki museum and much more. Take bus no 30 from Jernbanetorget or Oslo City Hall.

Loved the museum of the Vikingships. The Kon-Tiki museum was also great! The Norwegian folk museum has nice houses from all over Norway and also has a stave church.

This is a brilliant place to take a walk in the evening esp if there is a wonderful sunset. Some rather expensive but very posh restaurants here and great views
