About the Museum of Cultural History

The Museum of Cultural History is part of the University of Oslo. We have two museum buildings – the Historical Museum in central Oslo and the new Museum of the Viking Age, which opens in 2026 in the beautiful area of Bygdøy.

The Museum's extensive expertise in cultural history makes us the leading research museum in Norway. We also have Norway's largest archaeological and ethnographic collections – from the Stone Age, the Viking Age, the Middle Ages and up to recent times.
