Vikingship Museum - Viking Skip Museum, Oslo: 68 reviews and 133 photos
This had 3 old, huge Viking ships that had been found in burial mounds. Two were in pretty good shape, but the 3rd one was pretty disintegrated. The Oseberg, built around 815; the 24-meter Gokstad was built about 890; the Tune ship, discovered in Østfold in 1867, was built about 900 AD. (Although badly damaged, it is displayed to show construction details of ship building in Viking times). There was also a section with finds from the burial sites. This museum was fairly crowded - lots of tour buses.
Directions: Bus no. 30 to Bygdøy, every 15 minutes from Jernbanetorget (by Oslo train station) and the National Theatre.
The Bygdøy ferries goes from Rådhuskaia (near Oslo City Hall) to Dronningen during the summer.
