Welcome to the Viking Ship Museum
1000 years ago, the Vikings sailed along the shores of Europe, up rivers and across the open sea throughout the North Atlantic area.
Ships are the essence of the Viking Age. With them, the Scandinavian countries were founded.
The Viking Ship Museum is built around the five original Viking ships from Skuldelev. They are part of a global story about ships, people and things on voyages.
The museum tells the story of how the Vikings changed the World with their ships.
Without ships, no Viking Age.
Open every day
The Viking Ship Museum is open every day with activities, exciting stories and guided tours.
The museum displays both permanent and temporary exhibitions.
