Viking ship meetup, Oslo, December 7th, 2019


CITY/REGION: Oslo, Norway
DATE & TIME: December 7th, 11am
MEETUP PLACE: The Viking Ship House, Bygdy, Oslo

Hello all! As I'm sure you're aware, the government has finally set aside money to refurbish the Viking Ship House at Bygdy, home of the world's only extant viking ships. The museum will be completely made over, which of course is great, but it does mean that it will soon close to the public, and remain closed for something like 3 years. So if my dream of having a meetup card with a viking ship on it is to come true it will have to either be now or in 2023 at the earliest. :D So we're doing it now!

We will meet at the Viking Ship House - or if people want we can meet downtown and take the bus out to Bygdy together - and go in to look at the ships. Either we can just wander around on our own or, if there is interest, I can do a little guided tour of the museum. I am an historian by education and - long story - I have done these little tours before. So we can do that if everyone doesn't already know the story of the museum and the three ships. :)

There is a museum store which usually has a really good selection of postcards, so of course we will set aside time to do a little shopping too. ;)

This same weekend the Folk Museum down the road will be putting on their traditional Christmas market, so if there is interest in that we can stop by there as well. I have an OBOS membership card so I can get discounts on the entrance ticket for several people.

After the museum visit we will go to either Cafe Arkadia or to Hjemme hos Svigers, which are both within easy walking distance of the Viking Ship House, to have some food and write postcards. I haven't quite decided which place yet. Input is welcome :)

Hope some of you will be interested in attending ... ! :)

Attendees:

Of course we will have a meetup card ... a pretty cool one if I do say so myself :cool:

The card shows part of the Oseberg ship.

Price per card will depend on how many people want, so hard to say yet. But it'll be what you're used to from the cards KAS usually designs for us. :)

Cards:
LeishaCamden - 20
Marit_la - 20
Baguetta - 30
ScandinavianTraveler - 5
Inger71 - 10

A nice meetup where we also managed to visit Kulturhistorisk museum, and ended the meetup at Elis restaurant (recommend this restaurant).
