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!

The exhibits are well marked and tell the story of the Kontiki voyage and what happened to the different people when they got back.

I probably would not have visited the Kon-Tiki Museum without the Oslo pass, but it was worth taking a look at the famous rafts and seeing some of the related exhibits. I didn't much care for the layout, but still it was worth a quick...More

You have to go here. Even if you didn't read the book and study it in school like we did, even if you didn't build a diorama replicating the raft of the Kon-Tiki, you still need to see the amazing legacy of Thor Heyerdahl. We...More

We knew only a little about Kon-Tiki before we came to Oslo but a very informative museum with good displays. Well worth visiting.

This museum summarizes the trip of Thor Heyerdahl who sailed a balsa raft from Peru to Polynesia to prove that it could have been done centuries earlier. Quite an adventure captured in the museum.
