Bygdoy is a quiet, pleasant suburb of Oslo. It has a beautiful view of Oslo, the harbour and surrounding islands. The viking museum is definitely a must.
This area is worth allowing a whole day for as there are at least 5 excellent museums to visit. Get the Oslo Pass Card then you can just pop into any of them even if time is limited. The Bus ride there (no 30) is easy from central Oslo & am sure in summer the ferry would be a good... More

We lived here for 5 years half a century ago and Paradise cove on the west still has its allure, compared to more known and crowded Huk beach to the south. Nice forest to wander in .Museum Central... Folk museum is my favorite and the Meldal cabin especially, tucked away, see if you can find it.....
