Welcome to the Viking Ship Museum’s Boat Guilds

The Viking Ship Museum is more than just a museum. It is also an active boatyard, a centre for Nordic maritime culture and a research institute.

The Viking Ship Museum is also home to a sailing collection of boats. Some of these boats are sailed and maintained by volunteer boat societies. They have a lively social community focused around boats and outdoor life and they form an active part of the museum.

Laugnet.dk is for these people, but you are also welcome!

Unfortunately, we only have limited resources and the majority of our pages are only in Danish.

There are several different ways to become a member of the Boat Society.

  • Come along to the Museum Harbour and see the boat collection up close. It is also possible to meet the members of the volunteer boat societies on selected days and evenings.
  • Contact the Viking Ship Museum and they will be happy to put you in touch with a boat society.
  • Send an online application to become an active member of a boat society.
