Norwegian Maritime Museum (Sjøfartsmuseet) Oslo Reviews
Jul 09, 2007
Lying next to the FRAM og Kon-Tiki museum this museum is all about Norwegian maritime history. Did you know that Norway is the 3.rd biggest shipping nation if you count the value of all the ships owned by norwegian shareholders? Before they where nr3 in "Deadweight"(how much tonns a ship can carry),but most ships now are small, but with hightech equipment.
Anyway. Here you find everything from old sailingboats to modern cruiseships, and everything in between. Its also some old navigational instruments, old style lifting equipment and even a whaling harpoon. Norway is one of the few countries that still permits whaling. (I think the nations are Norway, Iceland and japan).
Exciting new supervideograph presents `Maritime Norway´. Showing a unique and fascinating panoramic view of maritime Norway. Maritime history. The Norwegian coast, its traditions and heritage.
Collection of Norwegian maritime paintings. Widescreen panorama movies featuring the coast of Norway and the port of Oslo. Library. Museum shop.
