Ra exhibition

In 1970, Thor Heyerdahl and his international crew crossed the Atlantic Ocean on the reed boat RA II. They had tried the year before but had to abandon the attempt due to a construction error. With his expedition in 1970, Thor Heyerdahl showed through experimental maritime archaeology that a similar voyage could have been made long before Columbus. The story of the expedition is told by the exhibits along the walls and the reed boat itself.
