2022 Norsk Maritimt Museum

As Carolyn Rasmussen told me, the museums in Norway are wonderful! While in Oslo I visited the Norsk Martimt Museum (Norwegian Maritime Museum). A feature of their work there is building replica’s of archaeological boat finds to test hypotheses as to how all the pieces come together. One display centered on a workspace and around the seating was a brown paper display with information about boat construction in different eras. I was also taken with the 2,200 year old dugout canoe which took 7 years of treatment before it could be put on display.
