Aug. 3: Oslo

The group showed few signs of jet lag the first morning, arriving bright and early at 8:30 am for the first seminar on the city of Oslo and Norwegian history. After the seminar, we picked up our Oslo passes and took the streetcar from Aker Brygge to the Vigeland Sculpture Park. Afterwards, we walked over to the Vigeland Museum, which is housed in Gustav Vigeland's former studio that was built for him by the city of Oslo.

In the afternoon, we took the sightseeing boat from the main harbor to Bygd√ły, where we visited the Kon-Tiki Museum, the Fram Museum, and the Viking Ship Museum.
