Kon-Tiki Museum

Recommended
Thor Heyerdahl (1914-2002) differed from Verdrup, Amundsen and Nansen by not seeking to reach new unexplored lands, but rather to rediscover the routes of ancient peoples. This museum recalls his voyages: the Kon-Tiki expedition from Peru to Polynesia to prove that the Polynesians were of South American descent; and the Ra II expedition from Morocco to Barbados to demonstrate that the Egyptians could have crossed the Atlantic.
