Only had 50 minutes to visit before the museum closed, but it was well worth it. Everything is in English and Norwegian.

My second visit to this excellent museum. It always amazes me what the Vikings did, their navigational / survival skills and the distance they covered. The detail in their art, especially jewellery, is phenomenal!

So much history and culture. Never knew how much history could be captured from a ship. Watch the video and take photos.

You might want to try emailing the museum (mailto:postmottak@khm.uio.no) but I’m afraid the soundtrack may have been recorded solely for the purpose of the animation and may not be made available.
