As you travel to Bygdøy, you’ll pass some of Oslo’s landmarks including the National Theatre and Royal Residence. Bygdøy, once the King's private property, is now partly laid out as a museum area, you’ll stop here for a guided visit to 3 interesting museums; The Viking Planet, Kon-Tiki and Fram.

The Viking Planet resurrects the Viking times with virtual reality technology, holograms, interactive screens and 270-degrees films. At this digital museum, you can learn about and experience how the Vikings lived, join them on their expeditions, feel the power of the elements onboard a Viking ship in a storm, and take a picture of yourself in Viking armor. The center has been equipped with the latest in technology and has hired production companies with long experience in storytelling, and special effects. Here you can use all you senses to learn about the Vikings religion, mythology, ships and cultural heritage.

The Kon-Tiki Museum houses original boats and exhibits from Thor Heyerdahl’s world famous expeditions to Ra, Tigris, Fatu-Hiva, Kon-Tiki, and Easter Island. It also has a 100 foot cave tour, cinema and an underwater exhibition containing a replica of a life-size 33 foot whale shark.

The Fram Museum shows the history of the polar explorers, including Nansen's journey across the Polar ocean, Sverdrup's expedition to Greenland and Amundsens journey to the South Pole. There are exhibits displaying animals from the Polar region and the world’s most famous polar ship, the Fram, built in 1892. The Fram is in its original condition with its interior and objects perfectly preserved. Amongst the many exhibits, is the museum’s newest addition, the Gjoa building, which holds the Gjoa, the first vessel to transit the Northwest Passage in 1906.
