History Museum
“Thor Heyerdahl is one of history’s most famous explorers. In 1947 he crossed the Pacific Ocean on the balsawood raft Kon-Tiki. This was his first expedition to be captured on film, and was later awarded Academy Award for best documentary in 1951. He later completed similar achievements with the reed boats Ra, Ra II and Tigris, through which he championed his deep involvement for both the environment and world peace. He was also responsible for important archeological excavations on the Galapagos Islands, Easter Island and in Túcume. The Kon-Tiki Museum exhibits objects from Heyerdahl’s world famous expeditions, the original Kon-Tiki raft, and the papyrus boat Ra II Bus 30 from Jernbanetorget (Oslo Central Station), Rådhuset (City Hall) and Solli plass every 10 min. Ferry from Rådhuskaien (City Hall Pier) from April to October every 20 min. Stop nr. 2 Bygdøynes, 200 meters away from the Kon-Tiki Museum. ”

History Museum
“What is it? An amazing museum in Bygdøy peninsula hosting the Fram ship. Norway has a close relationship to the Arctic, and Fram ship made it possible for Norwegian explorers to venture both to the extreme north and extreme south of the globe, making Norway one of the first nations to properly explore both these areas. Why go? The museum is definitely worth a visit if you want to find out more about Norway’s maritime history and what life was like on-board these hazardous explorations. Spend at least 3 hours in Bygdøy's highest rated museum, which is home to the world's strongest polar vessel, the Fram ship!”
