Daily guided tours

At the Viking Ship Museum, we offer daily free tours, adapted to the season. During the summer season, it is primarily outdoors at the boatyard and at all the reconstructions in the museum harbor. In the winter we move into the Viking Ship Hall, where the 5 original wrecks from the excavation at Skuldelev are exhibited.

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.
