Kon-Tiki Museum in Oslo

Oslo Norway Tourist Information and Travel Guide

The Kon-Tiki Museum in Oslo Norway contains the balsawood raft that was used by Thor Heyerdahl in his famous 1947 journey from Peru to Polynesia.

The Kon-Tiki Expedition was conducted to prove that such a journey could be undertaken with pre-Inca technology and know-how.  Heyerdahl wanted to prove his theory that the original Polynesian settlers had sailed in such rafts from Peru.
