The information gathered from the voyages are used in our research and experimental archaeological projects. The boats are sailed by volunteers from the respective boat guilds. You can read log-booknotes and see photos from the voyages.
From the moment ships cast off the last mooring lines in the Museum harbour and until they dock at the museum habour you can follow the voyage online on our website.
