Bygdøy Museums – How to Spend Money in Oslo

When the weather is sunny Bygdøy in Oslo is good for three things; museums, café’s, and the (small) beach.

If you like hemp and bamboo then the Kon-Tiki museum is great. Thor Heyerdahl’s (1914-2002) original Kon-Tiki raft is on display inside the museum, and there is a b&w movie going on repeat in the cinema at noon every day. Apparently it won an Oscar in 1951. Not highly interesting, but it’s there. There’s some-sort-of-weird-fish-attraction in the basement supposed to appeal to children; a big plastic fish (whale shark) hanging from the ceiling. Thor Heyerdahl’s archives at the Kon-Tiki Museum have now been included in UNESCO’s Memory of the World register.

Buy an Oslo Pass before going if you plan to visit more than one museum…
