Discover the treasures of 3 famous museums on Bygdoy as you get a glimpse of Norwegian culture and heritage. The venues all explore different themes such as Viking nautical history, accounts of polar voyages, and the legendary escapades of Thor Heyerdahl.

Bygdoy, a popular area of retreat for Osloites, is also home to 3 fascinating museums showcasing important aspects of local history. Begin in the Viking Ship Museum, where you can examine wonderfully restored examples of boats used in the Viking era—some of the best-preserved examples of their kind in the world.

The Fram Museum takes its name from one of the strongest polar vessels ever built and this captivating institution explores centuries of polar research. Given the proximity to the Arctic Circle, it offers an excellent chance to get in mindset of the brave explorers, scientists, and researchers such as Fridtjof Nansen and Roald Amundsen, who launched their expeditions nearby.

Finally, head to the Kon-Tiki Museum, where the life's work of explorer Thor Heyerdahl is documented. Learn about his most notable achievement when he set out across the Atlantic Ocean in a reed boat in an attempt to explore how earlier civilizations might have fared on the high seas.
