Day 3 Oslo
Day 3 starts early with the ferry to the Bygdøy peninsula which operates operates between March to October. More info and links for ferry at the end of post
The trip on the ferry is included in the Oslo pass again making this a fantastic investment for any travel to Oslo.
Departure is every 20-30 minutes from Pier 3 by the City Hall. We caught the first fery at 8:55 as this was to be the last day of our visit we wanted to see and do as much as possible.
Leave the ferry at the first stop Dronningen and taking about 20 minutes to get there its a very pleasant trip across. (Norwegian Museum of Cultural History/ Folk Museum, Viking Ship Museum and Oscarshall).
View from the ferry back to City hall
Viking museum. Fascinating place full of preserved artifacts and Viking boats and things.
Norwegian Folk Museum
For me this museum had to be one of my favorite places to visit as part of my Oslo long weekender. Packed full of fascinating glimpses in Norway’s past, and near past, history all brought to life with full size replicas and originals of the lives and living places of the Norwegians. Fascinating and deserves a good few hours of any visitors time to see it all as the grounds are quite extensive. More info on this at link to bottom of this post.
This retro model of a petrol station with Volkswagen Beetle on the forecourt is the ultimate in cool reproduction!
Contemporary Norwegian house just down from museum caught my eye, the fence in particular is aesthetically very pleasing.
Sun shines on the tram lines
Sunshine adds to the visual drama of this water fountain.
The sun sets on the end of a fabulous trip to Olso Norway. Time now to head back to the Airport for a late flight back to Manchester, Bon Voyage.
