The Viking Ship Museum’s boatyard

The boatyard is located on the Museum Island and work is carried out so that the public can follow the process at close quarters.

The boatyard builds clinker-built boats and its purpose is to preserve the maritime crafts associated with these boats.

The boatyard specialises in full-scale reconstructions of prehistoric boats using the methods of the time. However, we also build new boats based on old traditions and restore and repair old boats. We accept building commissions from private clients and from other museums.
