The Viking Ship Museum in Oslo has for a long time been one of the most popular attractions in the city. Now, it’s getting even more better, when their new 3D-film have premiered in the museum.
The film is called The Vikings Alive and it’s situated on the ceiling and back wall inside the Viking Ship Museum in Oslo. The film, that’s made with animation, presents a visual journey into the history of a ship. In the beginning of the film the Viking Ship is newly built, then it continues to the Norwegian fjords and ocean. The rest we will leave for you to see. The film is played in a loop all day, so you can go anytime. If you want to see a trailer of The Vikings Alive, go here.

On April 29th, the city of Stockholm is painted purple and filled with culture. It’s time for Stockholm Culture Night 2017.
Between 18.00 – 24.00, Saturday 29th of April, hundreds of fun events take place in Stockholm, and they’re for free. Stockholm Culture Night is an event to celebrate the diversity that exists in Stockholms cultural life, a chance to go and see something or do something you’ve never done before. We at OURWAY Tours are offering our Swedish tour Puss & Snusk, and there’s so much else to be found in the program. You can watch ballet at the Ballet Academy, check out Susan Philipsz – Lost in Space on Bonnier Konsthall, celebrate Finland’s 100 year anniversary at the Institute of Finland where a “Finntastic Festival” will be held or go to a DJ-course at Mäster Olofsgården. As you can hear, it’s a diverse program and we are super excited (and also a bit concerned about how we’re going to fit in everything we want to try!).
If you’re in town on the 29th and want to know what’s doable, you can head to the official information hub at Kulturhuset, Sergels torg. There they can answer questions and give you the program in English.
