The Basics

The museum also houses permanent exhibits on Ra, Tigris, Kon-Tiki, Fatu-Hiva, and Easter Island and even has a cave tour (100 feet/30 meters in length) and an underwater exhibition with a life-size whale shark. For those who are not well acquainted with Norway’s topographical landscape, there is a recommended widescreen film that takes the viewer on an aerial tour of the country’s coastline and settlements.

Individual and group tickets are available and include a screening of the Oscar-winning Kon-Tiki documentary film on the Kon-Tiki expedition. Guided tours must be pre-booked. Visit the museum website for inquiries.
