The Kon-Tiki Museum houses original boats and artifacts from Thor Heyerdahl's world famous expeditions such as the original Kon-Tiki balsa raft which crossed the Pacific Ocean in 1947 and the original reed boat Ra II which crossed the Atlantic Ocean in 1970. In both the Kon-Tiki and Ra exhibitions there are separate children exhibitions. The Kon-Tiki Museum also houses one of the most comprehensive exhibitions about Easter Island in the world, including a replica of a family cave from Easter Island. Underneath the Kon-Tiki raft is a special underwater exhibit that is fun for kids. Cinema screening the original Kon-Tiki documentary movie (Oscar for best documentary in 1951) every day at 12:00. Great museum shops. Free with Oslo Pass. A must when visiting Oslo!

The Kon Tiki story is brought to life in this impressive and informative series of exhibits. The seafarers ordeal is painstakingly retold in pictures and artifacts. Well worth a visit!

Being able to see the raft was a dream come true, since I loved the book when I was a teenager. It is a "must see" if going toOslo.

This is an extensive museum and full of interest for all ages. It is also worth purchasing the Oslo city pass since that gave us free admission to all the museums and attractions that we visited but also free Ferry rides.

If you have read the Kon Tiki book , you will love this Museum. The actual raft is there, plus many related articles. You can combine this visit by going to the Norwegian Folk Museum.
