The Viking Planet
Norway’s first digital Viking museum opened in Oslo in June 2019 with many unique experiences based on Viking heritage. This is the place to meet Vikings in Oslo.
The Viking Planet is a 1600-square-meter digital museum located next to the Oslo City Hall. This is the very first of several Viking Planets to be launched in Norway and abroad in the years to come. A digital portal to the Viking age, The Viking Planet offers a variety of unique experiences based on the Viking heritage of Norway, more than a thousand years ago.
THIS IS WHAT YOU CAN EXPERIENCE AT THE VIKING PLANET
TAKE PART IN HISTORY
With groundbreaking virtual reality technology, you can now step back more than a thousand years in time to board a Viking ship and witness a hyper-realistic drama that unfolds up-close and personal in VR — more immersive than a 4D cinema. This is the digital Viking museum in Oslo.
In collaboration with Ridley Scott’s production company RSA Films and the UK’s Dimension Studios, The Viking Planet presents the world’s first scripted drama produced using volumetric capture virtual reality.
With a 270-degree cinema, The Viking Planet presents compelling original Viking content in a way never before seen. Through several interactive experiences, you can explore topics like Ships & Navigation, Weapons & War, Women in the Viking Age, and Religion & Mythology.
LEARN IN A NEW WAY
The Viking Planet aims to connect audiences with the Viking times in an innovative and engaging way. You can meet Viking holograms and explore the iconic designs and symbols from the Viking age.
TRADITION MEETS TECHNOLOGY
The exhibit, ‘Virtual Viking — Innovation and Tradition,’ presents the Viking legacy in the context of contemporary technology.
AN INCLUSIVE APPROACH
The Viking Planet is presented in Norwegian, English, Italian, French, German, Mandarin, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and Polish to accommodate visitors from all parts of the world.
