We happened upon this drive as we had a few hours left of the car hire and wanted a picnic and park. We drove right to the end of the peninsula and parked in the large car park which is free in the Winter. There is then a park area that leads down to the water. The views are beautiful... More

On one side you have maritime museums and the folk museum. On the other beautiful beaches and secluded spots in the pine tree woods. Choose either culture or nature... or both!

The most beautiful thing about this peninsula is that it feels great to be in nature, around water, with beautiful Norwegian architecture. Both new and retro. In the cold out here it feels zen.

This peninsula is by all means worh a visit, and specially in the summer time when you also enjoy beachlife at Huk beach or The Paradise Bay. If you prefer other activities you can visit one of the museums or just go for a walk in the forest.

We visited the Bygdoy in January, not in the very best of it, but still we enjoyed the walk and especially the great placing of museums. You can go to Bygdoy and visit 5 of them at one place to spend your travel time to its best!

We were visiting the ship museum nearby and happened to be at this place. This penninsula overlooking the city and the fjord on the either side is worth visitng during sunset . the Golden streaks of the sunlight reflecting from Oslo's buildings was one of its kind

The best way to get to the peninsula is by taking Bus 30. The most fun way to get to the peninsula is to take the Oslo Fjord tour. The ship will stop at the museum peninsula and let you off there. The museums on the peninsula include three we visited in December - The Kon-Tiki, the Fram, and the... More

Hopped on ferry( free with travel card), and toured around fjords, getting off and walked around each island and hopped back on when boat returned, easy to view some of the habitat on the different islands
