Ancient shipping history

Back to exhibitions

This part of the exhibition deals with Norwegian and particularly western Norwegian maritime history from ancient times until the middle ages. From this period we know of many ship findings in Norway. At the museum you can see several original ship findings and models, including from the Halsnøy boat dated from the period 390-535 AD, the Kvalsund ship from the eighth century AD, in addition to models of the well-known Viking era-findings (800-1050), Oseberg and Gokstad.
