At the “museum island” Bygdoy you will find the world famous Viking ship museum. In the late 19th century several viking ships were found in the Oslo fjord. Due to the mud and conditions the ships were almost completely in tact. The Oseberg ship is the jewel of the exhibition. It was found by a farmer in 1903. The excavation took 3 month and the restorations 21 years. 90% of the ship is made of the original timber. It now shines together with the other viking ships and viking exhibitions in the Viking ship museum. The museum is about 5,5 km south west of the port. Reach it by public bus 30 or hop on hop off bus.
