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

A great place to spend a whole day if you are in Oslo for a few days. Take the ferry from Aker Brygga (the wharf downtown) over to the peninsula and then enjoy the pleasant walk between museums - the folk museum, the Con-Tiki museum, the Viking museum, the Fram, and the maritime museum are also there. The folk museum... More

The Bygdoy peninsula is a place you always dreamed of living. It's peaceful and quiet, the houses are beautiful with gardens and trees and it's also a few minutes by ferry to the city centre of Oslo. While here, you can visit the many museums which are also free with the Oslo pass.

Lots of great museums and attractions on Bygdoy. Most of our trip was spent here at the various excellent museums. The scenery and houses on the way were also stunning. The place is a feast for the eyes and mind.

Bygdøy is a peninsula on the west side of Oslo city. It is mainly a pleasant residential area fully immersed in the green, but here you can find also several Oslo’s most popular museums: the Viking Ship museum, the Polar Ship Fram museum, the Norvegian Maritime museum, the Norwegian Folk museum and the Holocaust Center. The best way to get... More

If you really want to get out of the "tourist" track and just relax and enjoy nature, this is the place. Starting at Bygdøy sjøbad and walk straight out Paradisbukta. You will walk under the trees with a view of the fjord. Birds are making music for you and the flowers is giving you joy. If you like you can... More
