Housed in an award-winning brick-and-glass building overlooking the Oslo Fjord at Bygdøy, the maritime museum celebrates Norway's long relationship with the sea. It is probably only worth a peek if you are a maritime fanatic or if you are visiting the other museums in Bygdøy peninsula, which include the Fram, the Kon-Tiki, Viking Ship, and Norwegian Folk Museum. Displays include model ships, the spindly remains of Norway's oldest boat, the Stokkebåten, and lots of remote-controlled boats to keep kids entertained. But everybody's favorite exhibit here is the movie highlighting the delights of Norway's fjord-indented coastline; the action swoops dizzyingly along the water's edge like a bird. Note that the museum may be partially closed for renovations during your visit, so check in advance.
