The Viking ships were built in the 800s and are found in three major burial mounds on Oseberg, Gokstad and Tune. Here they were hauled to be the craft of their royal owners' last journey to the kingdom of death.
The adventure film The Vikings Alive is a visual journey into the Viking Age, the film is shown all day in the ceiling and on the walls inside the museum.
The museum also has the world's only carriage from the Viking era, as well as sleds, carvings and residues of textiles.
