The Viking Ship Museum

Address: Huk Aveny 35

The Viking Ship Museum displays the large Viking ships Oseberg, Gokstad and Tune, as well as founds from the chief grave at Borre in the Vestfold district. The three ships are the best preserved Viking ships known, found in royal burial mounds in the Oslo fjord. As burial ships, carrying the dead over to “the Other World”, the ships were equipped with unique treasures such as wagons, horses and especially textiles which are seldom preserved from the Viking age, now on exhibit at the museum.

Our knowledge of daily life in the Viking Age comes mainly from archaeological finds. The graves contained not only jewellery, weapons and vehicle tools, but also other tools and household goods. These finds are exhibited in the museum.

The Viking Ship Museum and The Historical Museum form the University Museum of Cultural Heritage under the University of Oslo. The museum building was designed especially for the Viking Ships by one of the best-known Norwegian architects Arnstein Arneberg in 1927. The museum has temporary exhibitions and a various activities and venues.

The museum is located at the Bygdøy peninsula approx. 10 minutes driving out of the centre Oslo.
