What people are saying about Viking Ship Museum, Oslo

Overall rating

4.1
(526 reviews)

We didn't have audio from the cruise ship to the center and we missed the explanations, because we didn't have time to get back up. We told them more than 3 times that it wasn't working and they just started to fix it at the downtown stop. A shame. The rest ok

Journey was excellent, and buses regular. Audio guide very informative. Be aware that two companies run these buses, so you need to be careful to get on the correct bus.

Highly recommend this sightseeing bus, driver super nice and drove carefully and slow in the areas where the touristic attractions are!

The Hop-on Hop-off in Oslo worked very smoothly and went as we had expected.

Wish we had more time in Oslo.We will definitely come back!
