Perhaps Norway’s most famous cultural attraction, the Viking Ship Museum should be at the top of any list of must-see attractions in Oslo. It is one of five museums on the Bygdøy peninsula, which sits on the western side of Oslo—the nearby Kon-Tiki Museum and the Norwegian Folk Museum are also popular stops. For both kids who are fascinated by tales of raiding Vikings and adults who will appreciate a deeper look at the culture of the people who changed the course of history in Northern Europe, Britain, and, in turn, the world. The centerpieces of the museum are three ships excavated from burial mounds—the lost world of the Vikings will feel alive again when you visit.
