Afterwards, you can choose to take the ferry back to Oslo, the boats leave every 30 minutes. Departeture time for the ferry. You can also take the bus from outside the Kon Tiki Museum. Bus 30 leaves every 10 minutes and goes into the center of Oslo.

However, there is much to see at Bygdøy. The Norwegian Maritime Museum is right opposite of the Fram building. http://norsk-sjofartsmuseum.no/
