The New Viking Age Museum, Norway

The vision for the new Viking Age Museum, is to create a forward-looking new signature for one of Norway’s most popular museums, that conveys the unique cultural history of the Viking Age. The new extension will be a natural continuation of Arnstein Arneberg’s significant Viking Ship Building from 1926 and the new landscape will contribute to an eventful museum experience. The aim of the new museum park is to create a strong connection between the park and the museum and between history and nature, thereby complementing and adding new dimensions to the understanding of Norway’s rich cultural history and Bygdoy’s unique nature amenities. The new museum park creates a flexible frame for different activities and events and turns the museum into a new destination and an attractive gathering place where both visitors and citizens can experience the cultural history in nature.
