Only norway’s national shrine, oslo’s holmenkollen ski Jump, draws more tourists, and that’s a much bigger area. Yes, you will have to wait in line. And, sure, it’s a bit out of the way, even if there are several other museums you can do in the same go. there is really no good reason not to visit the Kon-tiki museum, with the Kon-tiki raft that norwegian thor heyerdahl’s built from balsa logs in peru and sailed to polynesian islands being the main attraction. The reed boat rall, which he sailed from north africa to the Caribbean, is also there. But it may be the 10 meter (32 foot) tall copy of one of the statues from easter island that makes the biggest impression. That or perhaps the fact that someone is so dedicated to research that they set of with the 130 kilogram (285 pound) plaster cast to make it. For hours and prices visit The Kon-Tiki Museum website.
