Three ships, each more than 1000 years old, but the lines are as sleek as a modern sportscar. Great video explains the Viking lifestyle. You don't have to know any Norwegian to understand the significance of these objects. You can get a perspective by climbing...More

Being of Norwegian decent, one of our reasons for visiting Norway was to see historical artifacts. These original ships were amazing to see firsthand. The craftsmanship of these vessels, and the other artifacts, with sweeping lines and intricate carvings were truly impressive. The vessels can...More

I wished the exhibition was more lively but its still amazing to look at the ships. If you are not too familiar with viking history it is definitely worth the trip.

This is a small museum, but very interesting and with good quality information. It was crowded on our visit as there was a large cruise ship in port. There are three ships on display, which shows clearly the skills of the Viking ship builders.

You might want to try emailing the museum (mailto:postmottak@khm.uio.no) but I’m afraid the soundtrack may have been recorded solely for the purpose of the animation and may not be made available.

The first ship was shifted there in 1926, and the final building was finished in 1956. As far as I know a new shifting, whch has been planned for many years now have been skipped for good
