"Oseberg Ship-Vikingskipshuset" Vikingship Museum - Viking Skip Museum Tip by bpwillet

  Oseberg Ship-Vikingskipshuset
by bpwillet
 
 

This is the first Viking ship that you will see upon entering the museum. In 1904 a grave mounds was excavated and the ship was found along with its remains. 90% of which is all original. It is 72 ft long and was probably used as a cruise ship in calm waters as the sides are not as steep as the other boats that would be used to cross great distances.
