Photos from Viking Ship Museum in Oslo Norway

I recently returned from several weeks in Iceland and Norway.  With wooden boats on my mind, I took photos of the Gokstad, Oseberg ships, built in the 800s, at the Viking Ship Museum in Oslo, Norway.

Thanks for these Eric. After having completed a Dusek kit of the Gokstad I have a whole new appreciation for the art and craftsmanship of these Northmen. If you ever decide to build one of these ships check out some of the videos that are linked to recent posts of the Viking ship Drakken, particularly its building.


I hope to see you back at your shipyard soon.


Best, Ian

Yes, they are wonderfully built ships and very sea worthy. I visited the Viking museum in 2001. While there we also visited the Fram museum nearby. If you ever get back to Norway I suggest you go see it if you haven't already done so. Thank you for sharing your great photographs, they really catch the essence of the ship. I lost my own when my computer crashed a few years ago.
