The Brig Tre Kronor af Stockholm
The Brig “Tre Kronor af Stockholm” is a two-masted ship with both masts carrying square sails all the way. The Brig was one of the most important sailing vessels of the 18th and 19th centuries. This ship is modelled after "Gladan", a Brig built in 1857 as a cargo navy ship. "Gladan" also made two journeys as a supply ship for A F Nordenskiöld and his expeditions to Spitsbergen and Greenland. The construction of the Brig “Tre Kronor af Stockholm” has been carried out in the same traditional manner as when "Gladan" was built over 150 years ago.

The town breeds a maritime atmosphere with a great selection of seafood restaurants as well as a variety of Fjord Cruises.
The Polar Vessel Fram (Frammuseet)
The polar vessel "Fram" played an integral role in the Norwegian expeditions to polar areas, as it was used on three historic journeys. "Fram" was the world’s most powerful conventional ship specially designed to withstand pack ice in the Polar Regions. The Arctic Sea ship has been well restored and preserved for posterity and is now moored at the Fram Museum in Bygdøy, Oslo. This museum also houses much of the equipment used by Nansen, Sverdrup and Amundsen on their expeditions.
The Fram Museum presents great segments of our polar history, which is simultaneously world history in Polar contexts, and the museum is one of the finest sights of interest Oslo has to offer.
The Kon-Tiki Museum
Thor Heyerdahl (1914-2002) is one of history’s most famous scientists, adventurers and champions of the environment. The name Thor Heyerdahl is primarily associated with the Kon-Tiki expedition. In 1947, Heyerdahl and his crew sailed across the Pacific Ocean from Peru to the Tuamato Islands in Polynesia. The voyage took place on a lightweight raft made of balsa wood, and the expedition covered eight thousand kilometers in the course of 101 days. The purpose of the expedition was to prove Heyerdahl’s theory about migration from South America to Polynesia in former times.
Norwegian Maritime Museum
The museum houses a unique collection of maritime paintings, ship models and a presentation of Norway’s coastline and coastal culture featuring traditional wooden boats, fishing tackle and an interesting display of old artefacts once used in shipbuilding and stockfish production.
