In 1962, the remains of five Viking ships emerged from the mud at Roskilde Fjord.
The find turned out knowledge of Nordic maritime culture upside down and opened the door to the Viking Age world.
With this exhibition, we offer a look behind the scenes and show how years of working with the ships, has led to the development of an working environment that builds bridges between researchers, craftsmen and sailors.
We step into the excavation of the Skuldelev ships, get close to the boatbuilders, follow the sailing reconstructions on trial voyages and dive with the maritime archaeologists to sunken, underwater worlds.
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
