Our Guide ( the charming scottsman, forgot his name) was great. We needed a while to get used to his kinda special way of speaking. But after that it was a blast. Especially for the kids that were there (they have to be old enough for quite gory stories though). Lots of audience participation and joking around. you really got the impression that he likes his role as mysterious storyteller, so the time with him just flies while exploring this beautiful old town.

Amazing experience,I would recommend anyone interested in historical and archeological projects it's aust whilst in Stockholm. Lots of information,great accessibility and super clean facilities, to end it all the cafe has amazing food!

Great museum, you can listen audio tour guide from your phone in the meantime. They leveled story of the ship, and supported the exhibition with items from inside of the ship. I loved it.

Great tour showing us the various sights of Oslo. Extremely knowledgeable guide.

Good and organised museum with loads of interesting facts and display.
