The new museum represents a new generation of research museums aimed at creating enriching visitor experiences by combining world-leading research, unique Viking Age collections and visionary architecture with absorbing, dynamic public exhibitions and other public attractions.
KHM has a unique potential to realise this vision. We have of the world’s most extraordinary Viking Age collections, world-leading Viking researchers and the existing Viking Ship Museum, which is already Norway’s most visited museum.
The Research Centre will consolidate this research community. The new museum will be a world-leading Viking Age museum and research institution, recogonized, both nationally and internationally, for it`s production of new knowledge about the Viking Age.
