Our next stop was the Viking museum. It was much smaller than we thought. It had a few old Viking ships as well as artefacts. There were a lot of carvings on the ships as well as other items.

After that we walked all the way across town again to Thief Island, another area that has been repurposes from its former maritime and industrial uses to house a modern art museum and a lot of high-end apartments and shops. All of the buildings looked quite new and all, especially the art museum (designed by Renzo Piano), had interesting and unusual design.
