What’s a trip to Norway without looking up the odd Viking or two? A short and very easy bus ride from the city centre of Oslo brings you to the Bygdøy area and this wonderful building which, over two floors, reveals artefacts, paintings, films and some stunning actual viking boats, the sheer size and condition of which is somewhat overwhelming. They’re the real thing, incredibly preserved, giving you a genuine idea of the hardships faced by those on board. Glass cabinets house a multitude of fascinating stuff, from sandals and weapons to chairs and jewels, and don’t miss the Vikings Alive immersive film show which covers the walls and ceiling of one of the wings – it’s genuinely delightful.
