Walk to The Viking and Whaling Museums

Good morning,

We walked from the Toensberg Shopping Mall (yesterday's post) to the Viking and Whaling Museums.  That's one of the wonderful things about Toensberg:  we were able to walk from our hotel and see so many different things.
We walked through the old streets...
...and, looking down one of the side streets could see Slottsfjellet.  This could be seen from Oslo Fjord when we sailed into the fjord on our way to Oslo, 60 miles to the North.  More image to come of Slottsfjellet.
The Viking and Whaling Museums are adjacent to each other in connecting buildings.
We have been here before, but it is fun to be back and see some changes.
 There is now an area where meetings and events can be held.
 This beautiful old piano could use a matching piano bench.  ;)
 Sadly, someone had left a drink glass on the piano.

There is a great deal to see here.  More of the museums and the climb to Slottsfjellet in posts to come.

All the best,
Lois
