The Viking Ship Museum is Denmark's museum for ships, seafaring and maritime crafts in prehistoric and medieval times. The museum combines cultural exhibitions with activities relating to Viking Age society and the maritime culture of the Vikings.
The museum's boat and ship collection consisting of reconstructed Viking ships and traditional Nordic single, square-sail rigged boats play an active part of the museum's presentation.
During sailing season from the 1 May til 30 of September, guests can step on board as crew and experience their sailing abilities on Roskilde Fjord.
The museum offers open boat trips on a daily basis or special trips for larger groups.
