Skeletons and Viking treasures
Explore exhibitions that reveal skeletons and selected finds from the past. These include one of the best-preserved polar bear skeletons in the world, which was discovered and excavated from a cellar on the island of Finnøy outside of Stavanger. The museum has beautiful jewellery and objects made by talented goldsmiths in the Viking Age.
The museum's artefacts carry stories and mysteries waiting to be explored. Don't miss their guided tours that give you a more profound knowledge and understanding of our prehistory.
You can take a breather in the museum's café Ask and Embla, where you can enjoy a tasty cup of coffee, a delicious lunch and tempting cakes. It's the perfect way to reflect on the impressions you've gained from your visit.
