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
