The Historical Museum is situated in one of Norway’s most beautiful buildings, and was built in the Jugendstil fashion in Oslo. In front of the museum, there is a beautiful alée, making the building itself even more magnificent. The Museum opened its doors for the public in 1904, and the exhibits available range from the medieval period, the Viking era, ancient Egypt and ethnographic collections, to items brought from arctic and African exhibitions, as well as items depicting American and Easter Asian cultural motifs. Tools, weapons, traditional national costumes, jewelry, furniture, along with a room filled with treasure and coins provide you with a full, immersive experience of the history of Oslo.
You can use the ticket to the Historical Museum up to 48 hours after purchase for free access to the Viking Ship Museum.
Every final Saturday of the month, the Museum’s doors are open free of charge.
