The Norwegian Maritime Museum is in the middle of an extensive renovation program heading for the museum's 100th anniversary. The museum's vision is to be recognized as a national museum of experience and knowledge with a solid scientific and professional foundation.
Expology worked together with LPO architects to implement the new exhibition “The Ship - Innovation and variation”. The exhibition deals with the technological developments that has made it possible to use the sea as a resource, from the most primitive floating aids to today's high-tech ships.
An exciting part of the exhibition is a pool where visitors get the opportunity to participate in various educational programs. Remote controlled boats are used for educational exercises where visitors get to try different situations relating to maritime safety, navigation, etc.
The Norwegian Maritime Museum was founded in 1914. It is located on the Bygdøy peninsula on the western side of Oslo. Its exhibits on coastal culture and maritime history include boat models, fishing, marine archeology, marine paintings, ship building and shipping.
