About The Kon-Tiki Museum

The Kon-Tiki Museum tells the story about one of the most famous Norwegians in history, Thor Heyerdahl

Thor Heyerdahl (1914-2002) gained worldwide fame when he crossed the Pacific Ocean on Kon-Tiki in 1947. He followed this up with spectacular expeditions on the reed boats Ra and Tigris. His recreations of prehistoric voyages showed that early man had mastered sailing before the saddle and wheel were invented. His reputation as a scientist was consolidated through his archaeological excavations on the fabled, mysterious Easter Island. Curiosity was Thor Heyerdahl's driving force. If you want to learn more about his exciting work, you can visit the Kon-Tiki Museum in Oslo.
Thor Heyerdahl’s archives at the Kon-Tiki Museum have now been included in UNESCO’s Memory of the World register
