This is the Viking Ship Museum in Oslo, Norway. It was designed by Norway's most famous architect Arnstein Arneberg. Here is he Oseberg ship inside the Viking Ship Museum. The ships were excavated from royal burial mounds located in the Oslo Fjord. The ships were all burial ships... a vessel to take the dead "to the other World," and they also contained treasures.

Close up of Viking ship. A building in Oslo near the harbor that caught my eye with its dramatic lines. Oslo City Hall, also designed by Arnstein Arneberg, as seen from the harbor.
