The Viking Ship Museum offers daily guided tours in English. The guided tours are free once you’ve bought an entrance ticket.
Feel the presence of history when you stand before the five original Viking Ships that bear witness to war, trade and sea voyages to distant places.
Our daily guided tours focus on the five original Viking ships from Skuldelev, exhibited in the Viking Ships Hall. The ships bear witness to the specialised sea faring of the Viking Age, to wars and raids, trade and voyages to distant shores and life in the North 1000 years ago.
