On the day, Bygdøynes' ownour Green Capital booklet "Mission Bygdøynes" will be launched and take you through three museums: the Kon-Tiki Museum, the Fram Museum, and the Norwegian Maritime Museum.​ You will recieve it for free, and you can solve puzzles and be guided through all three museums at Bygdøynes. 

Outdoor, by the lighthouse at 13:00 the museums will provide refreshments of hot chocolate and biscuits, which were tasty favourites of seafarers, Thor Heyerdahl and the polar heroes. 

You can take part in the "Rubbish as artefacts" guided tour at the Kon-Tiki Museum at 13:30. Thor Heyerdahl, who could be called the first eco-warrior, used rubbish as a source in his research on both the Galapagos Islands and Easter Island.

At 14:30 you can take part in an "archaeological dig", a family activity at the Norwegian Maritime Museum where you will be able to view historic rubbish.

Admission: You can buy your combination ticket in all three museums

Location: Outdoor by the lighthouse, the Kon-Tiki Museum, the Maritime Museum and the Fram Museum
