The Historical Museum
#19 of 108 Museums in Oslo
All museums and a lot of attractions are either cheaper or free with it, and given the price of the city every little helps.
Taken in conjunction with the other big Viking age attraction that Oslo has to offer, the Viking Ship Museum, the Historical Museum's exhibits on the Vikings really do flesh out these amazing people.

A small museum, all located in one large room (where the trams used to be stored whilst in use), and if you work your way around the transport is in chronological order, quite a nice presentation.
