  • Must see museum for those who are interested in Vikings culture and heritage. It is not crowded by tourists, the items are nicely introduced, especially the floor "movie" of how the bodies are decomposing in graves. The only problem was that some explanations were written in Norwegian, without English translation. We had to use phone application to translate them
  • Lovely building. Nice staff. Easy walk from centre. Went to see the Viking stuff but was blown away by the polar bear. Definitely worth a visit. Good toilets lockers and cafe as well.
