Overview
More
The Kon-Tiki Museum houses original boats and artifacts from Thor Heyerdahl's world famous expeditions such as the original Kon-Tiki balsa raft which crossed the Pacific Ocean in 1947 and the original reed boat Ra II which crossed the Atlantic Ocean in 1970. In both the Kon-Tiki and Ra exhibitions there are separate children exhibitions. The Kon-Tiki Museum also houses one of the most comprehensive exhibitions about Easter Island in the world, including a replica of a family cave from Easter Island. Underneath the Kon-Tiki raft is a special underwater exhibit that is fun for kids. Cinema screening the original Kon-Tiki documentary movie (Oscar for best documentary in 1951) every day at 12:00. Great museum shops. Free with Oslo Pass. A must when visiting Oslo!

Five guys crossing the Pacific on a raft in 1947. If you find that sort of thing interesting, this museum is for you. Going with the kids? Try seeing the movie first (2012 version). That way it will make more sense to them - and...More

Thor Heyerdahl believed the Peruvians were capable of traveling via the Humnbolt current to Polynesia. He arranged to build a raft of balsa wood and drift/sail to Polynesia. He against all odds made the voyage.

The adventures of the Kon-Tiki make for a great story. That's probably why they made the movie about it. Seeing it in person gives a new respect for what the people on it went through. If you go out to see it, plan to see...More

Thor Heyerdahl was one of my boyhood heroes. I was totally delighted to visit this marvellous exhibition of his most epic voyage. The Kon Tiki voyage was undertaken to prove Heyerdahl's theory about world population movements. It was a pleasure to see the crude craft...More

Unbelievable that people were "crazy" enough to make these voyages in these rafts and reed boats. Amazing information. Make sure to buy the Oslo pass to enter here(and the Polar Ship Museum/Viking Sip Museum/National Gallery)
