The Viking Ship Museum “Vikingskipshuset”

(0 votes, average 0 out of 5)

altThe Viking Ship Museum or “Vikingskipshuset” is located in Bygdoy, a short bus or ferry ride from the city center. The museum features several Viking ships used in ancient burials that have been preserved amazingly well by the blue clay in which they were buried. The boats are filled with jewels and artifacts, and are definitely worth seeing. This is also an excellent stop for those with kids in tow; many children have been seen gawking at the ships long after their parents wish to leave. Nearby, you will find the Museum of Cultural Heritage, which is a large outdoor museum featuring buildings from various points in Norwegian history.
