24. -30. July: Work with red-hot iron

The Viking Ship Museum's skilled black smiths shows their special techniques to the museum's guests who can come close to the complicated and mysterious smithing technique this week.

Our visitors can follow the smelting of the bog ore, the forging of the rivets and the use of the rivets in the boat. Museum guests can also try their own hand at making an iron nail. Our skilled blacksmiths will both demonstrate and explain the noble art of blacksmithing- so come and join in!

Throughout the summer the Viking Ship Museum focus on the many different maritime crafts and other special vikinge activities.
Depending on when you visit the museum, you can go for war training, learn boatbuilding, meet the black smith or help make wood tar with the museum's skilled craftsmen.
