Description

The Kon-Tiki Museum houses original vessels and artifacts from the world-renowned expeditions of Thor Heyerdahl, one of the most famous scientists, adventurers and environmental campaigners of all time.

Experience the original Kon-Tiki raft, the reed boat Ra II, an exhibition about the Tigris and an Easter Island exhibition that includes a 10-metre replica of a statue from Easter Island.

The museum also has a film screening room and souvenir shop.

Thor Heyerdahl (1914-2002) gained worldwide fame when he crossed the Pacific Ocean on Kon-Tiki in 1947 - an expedition made even more famous by the 2012 film Kon-Tiki, which was nominated for an Academy Award.

Heyerdahl followed this up with spectacular expeditions on the reed boats Ra and Tigris. His recreations of prehistoric voyages showed that early man had mastered sailing before the saddle and wheel were invented.
