"Museum Island" and Other Recreation

Just west of Oslo's city center is Bygdøy Peninsula, often called "Museum Island" (although it's not an island) for the variety of interesting institutions located there: The Fram Museum, Viking Ship Museum, Maritime Museum, Norwegian Folk Museum, Kon-Tiki Museum, Holocaust Center, Queen Joséphine Gallery and Oscarshall. If you're in the mood for some exercise, the peninsula boasts hiking and bicycle trails and beaches. There are also some shoreside restaurants in Hukodden and Paradisbukta. To get to Bygdøy from the city, take the #30 bus or travel by boat ferry from Pier 3 in Oslo.
