The exhibition in the Medieval Gallery displays religious artefacts as well as everyday objects.
The museum's collection of antiquities includes Norway's oldest and largest collection of Egyptian artefacts.
The ethnographic exhibitions give the visitors insight into the lives of the indigenous populations of the Arctic and sub-Arctic areas, and The Americas.
Gold is power - gold gives prestige. By minting gold coins, rulers have enabled people to meet and exchange values in confidence for the past 2,600 years. And individual exploits live on by being honoured in gold.
Greek, Etruscan and Roman artifacts from The collection of Classical Antiquitites are displayed in this small and exclusive exhibition. The items are organized periodically in each of their booths.
A collapse is also a beginning. Things fall apart, something new begins. In Collapse, you will meet people who, in various ways and at different times, face forces of nature that threatens to collapse their world.
The Viking Age exhibition is currently closed due to renovation work. Our new exhibition Vikingr opens in 2019.
In this exhibition you will be able to view some of the objects that gave people hope in the Middle Ages - the hope of a better life after death.
