The Kon-Tiki Museum houses the ships and other artefacts from the Kon-Tiki expedition in which Thor Heyerdahl crossed the Pacific Ocean in 1947.
The museum was actually really well laid out and I learned a lot about the expeditions that I hadn’t previously known about other than their name. The exhibition starts at the planning stages of the voyage right through to its successful completion.
The museum also tells some of the story of Easter Island (where Heyerdahl lead an archaeological expedition) including a number of artefacts from the Islands and even caves modelled after those found on the Islands.
It’s another one of Oslo’s excellent museums and being able to see an actual ship that made such a historic journey is always a highlight. You can find more of my photos from the museum here.
