Larvik Maritime Museum The museum is to be found by idyllic Tollerodden in Larvik's oldest brick building. Models, pictures of ships and artifacts tell Larvik's maritime story, of sail, whaling, and modern shipping. A separate section about Colin Archer shows his effort as a ship builder for several ship owners. Fridtjof Nansen's polar ship Fram is world famous. There is also a section devoted to Larvik born Thor Heyerdahl. The Kaupang Exhibition Where Roads Meet In May 2000 an exhibition about Skiringssalkaupang will open in the maritime museum. It is the Viking trading post at Kaupang in Tjolling that will again come to light when Oslo University starts a new excavation at Kaupang. Both content and presentation will be developed in cooperation with the Kaupang excavation. The exhibition presents both localisation problems and the story of the excavation through almost 150 years. There were great excavations at Kaupang from 1950 until 1967. Finds from the graves and town area at the west side of Kaupang have led us to refer to Kaupang as Norway's first town. Kaupang's place in our cultural landscape and it's influence around the North Sea and Baltic Sea are the main themes of the exhibition. Original finds from Kaupang will be on loan from the University's collection of ancient artifacts and will be exhibited locally for the first time since 1953. Together with original artifacts, maps, pictures and a model of the five houses that have already been excavated in the township area of Kaupang, the goal is to show how life was likely to have been in and around Kaupang at one time.
