Owner description: The Kon-Tiki Museum houses original boats and artifacts from Thor Heyerdahl's world famous expeditions such as the original Kon-Tiki balsa raft which crossed the Pacific Ocean in 1947 and the original reed boat Ra II which crossed the Atlantic Ocean in 1970. In both the Kon-Tiki and Ra exhibitions there are separate children exhibitions. The Kon-Tiki Museum also houses one of the most comprehensive exhibitions about Easter Island in the world, including a replica of a family cave from Easter Island. Underneath the Kon-Tiki raft is a special underwater exhibit that is fun for kids. Cinema screening the original Kon-Tiki documentary movie (Oscar for best documentary in 1951) every day at 12:00. Great museum shops. Free with Oslo Pass. A must when visiting Oslo!

We saw other ship museums more informative, for same or less money. Dark & small. They have one tour? At noon. Maybe that would be more impressive.

The 7 of us were on a tour, but "on our own". Bought OsloPass, allowing us to take streetcar to Viking Ship Museum (be sure to see it), Maritime Museum, aka Fram (skip if pressed for time), and Kon-Tiki (well worth it) - Kon-Tiki and Maritime are next to each other. We then took the ferry back to City Hall, right near Opera House. OsloPass allows entrance to all this - good deal.
To me, Kon-Tiki was the most interesting, though Viking Ship is also good.
Seeing the expedition ships of Thor Heyerdahl was fascinating, and it was good to see the life-size models and follow his adventures.

The Oslo Card is worthwhile if you plan to see museums in Oslo.
The Bygdoy Peninsula includes the Viking Ship Museum, the Norwegian Folk Museum, Fram Polar Ship Museum, and the Kon- Tiki Museum. We took the ferry from near Oslo City Hall over to the Bygdoy Peninsula to see these 4 museums. All admissions and the ferry are included with the Oslo Pass. The Kon-Tiki Museum was the last one we visited along with the Fram Polar Ship Museum. It had interesting exhibits, but we were ready to get back on the short return ferry ride after a day of seeing museums. Oslo City Hall is also a good guided tour.
