Exhibitions

The Norwegian Maritime Museum has six exhibit spaces, including a separate exhibit hall for traditional boats (reopens in May 2019). As well as a central hall area in the main building used for temporary exhibits.

Our exhibits include a wide array of maritime topics, such as the technical conventions of sea transport in "The ship," the life and destiny of sailors at sea through history in "At sea!" and our interactive experience centre in "Norway is the sea." 

Visit our gallery with maritime art with pieces by famous artists such as Christian Krohg, Hans Gude and Axel Revold. Maritime paintings such as these have long held an important role in the Norwegian art community.

While the boat hall is closed, you may experience a selection of the museum’s unique collection of Norwegian traditional boats in the central hall.
