Definitely a good proof of what man is capable of doing with willpower and a thirst for adventure. Kon-Tiki is an amazing story and seeing the little raft makes one respect Heyerdahls efforts! Definitely worth the visit, especially with Oslo Pass!

We loved this exhibit! Very inspiring. The story of these men and their long voyage should be an inspiration to people who are interested seeking out new frontiers and what it takes to do that.

The museum has a nice exhibit, with a lot of interesting objects. There are parts that will be enjoyable for children too, like a giant fish and the boats. The topic about Kon-Tiki is fully covered with all necessary information. They sell good quality souvenirs.
