With over 400.000 visitors every year, the Viking Ship Museum on the Bygdøy peninsula is probably one of Oslo’s most popular attractions. Now, plans to extend the museum have been confirmed. The new museum will be about three times as large as the old one and will be dedicated to the Viking Age in all of Scandinavia.  

​​​An important part of the project is to preserve the Viking ships for future generations. Over the past decades, cracks have appeared in the old wooden constructions. This makes it necessary to build completely new support systems for the ships. This, along with other conservation efforts, will be undertaken in the coming years.
