Guided tours

During the winter holiday, The Viking Ship Museum offers daily, free guided tours in English.

The guided tours are conducted by history and archaeology students. Their stories give life to the original ships and put the discovery of the five Skuldelev ships into perspective in relation to the maritime culture of the Viking Age. The guided tours take about 45 minutes.

Climb aboard

Climb aboard a Viking ship and experience how it was to take a voyage over the open sea. Everything you see, feel and register, when sailing in a Viking ship as the day goes from clear, bright morning to the all-encompassing dark of night, and as the weather changes from no wind and blinding sunshine to storm, thunder and high seas.

The activities are aimed towards families with children aged between 6 - 14 and take place indoors in the Viking Ship Hall. Some of the activities require an extra charge.
