The Viking Museum contains Viking ships and collections from the Viking Age, and the current museum building was completed in 1957. In addition to the renovation of the old building, a new building of 9300 square meters is planned to house the Viking ships, other objects, as well as a restaurant, laboratories and a research center. The new building is shaped in an arc and connects to the existing museum building.
Earlier this year, AF Gruppen entered into a contract with Statsbygg for the new building, and Multiconsult is now commissioned as a consulting engineer in the project. Construction is scheduled to start in 2022, with completion by the end of 2025.
