Climb Aboard - a new exhibition in the Viking Ship Hall
The exhibition takes you to the open sea where the weather changes from calm breeze to storms, thunder and high seas while the day changes from clear and bright morning to the darkest night.
Climb Aboard, the new exhibition at the Viking Ship Museum, is a story of voyaging across open sea. All that you see, hear, feel and sense with and within your body, while the day goes from clear, bright morning to an all-encompassing darkness. Changes in weather from blinding sunshine and a calm breeze, to storms, thunder and high seas. How the atmosphere shifts from boredom-induced stupor to one of dramatic energy.
The two ships are stocked with equipment and trading goods, which underline their function and invite for exploration; guests can open barrels and chests, have a look below deck, take a rest in the soft skins beneath the ship’s tent or try their hand as helmsman.
Aboard the warship, the cramped conditions can be experienced, and chests with warrior equipment reveal the hierarchy aboard. On the trading ship, iron bars, slate, antlers, silk, polar bear skin and amber bear witness to the merchants’ networks and sailing routes.
Always something to experience at the Viking Ship Museum:
Five ships - 1000 years of history
The museum's exhibitions are modern storytelling about the Vikings and their ships
