Maritime Heritage with polar ship Fram and the KonTiki raft

Norway is a country of mountains and fjords. Thus the main “road” for transportation of goods and people has always been the sea. In the Maritime Museum you will find a boat more than two thousand years old and discover lots of interesting facts about our history as a modern shipping nation.

Polar exploration was important in late 1800 and early 1900. There was a race to conquer the North pole and the South pole. In the Polar Museum you find the two authentic polar ships Fram (-forward) and Gjøa.

Another famous Norwegian explorer was Thor Heyerdal, who set out from Peru to prove there had been contact between South America and the Pacific islands in ancient times. Next to the Polar museum the original Kon Tiki raft is on display.
