Bygdoy Peninsula has a number of great museums, Fram, Kon-Tiki and the Maritime Museum to mention a few. There is also a walk and bike path around. And you take a 10 minute boat ride to get there.

Fram, Kontiki,Viking museums, coffee shops and views of Oslo Fjord. Excellent. The Viking museum contains ships unearthed from burial grounds, and there is a short video of life as a Viking sailor.

We took a small ferry to the peninsula and enjoyed walking around and visiting a number of the museums. There really is a lot to see and do, so one could easily spend at least a day here.

The information that you have about the ferry ride to Bygdoy Peninsula is true. The last ferry will operate this year on October 14th. So if you are traveling to Oslo after that, you’ll not be able to take the ferry. But you... More
