The boats and wood carvings and overall technology shown here is stunning. Well worth a visit. The wagons and burial practices were amazing.

We recently visited Denmark, Norway and Sweden and this is the one Viking stop to make. Not only are the authentic Viking ships present but there are exhibits to explain Viking life and a movie as well.

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.
