  • We decided to stop off here on the drive between Copenhagen and Billund. It turned out to be a fantastic little stop off for the whole family. Our children - 5 and 3 - loved the ride in the Viking boa...  more »
  • This place is well carried out and gives you a lot of experience and information. The whole exhibition is well implemented and it gave us a positive and full of morning.

  • Very nice small museum with very friendly people. A blacksmith and boat Builder show you how at that time, a boat built like this that is buried under the mound. Well for a short stop and as a starter for the big Viking museum in Roskilde.

  • Ship is a main attraction outside and there are some activities for kids where they can experience the age of vikings. It is not so impressive as some other viking museums in area but with the excavated and reconstructed ship it does offer more realistic view on history. A bit more boards or interactive displays would enhance experience
  • The actual tomb with the remains of the viking ship was beyond amazing. It made me feel as if I was seeing living history. I would strongly recommend this small museum to anyone interested in history, the vikings or archeology. Brilliant.
  • The museum seeks to sit on two chairs at the same time without success: The focus of the museum is the story of the ship as well as contemporary viking society. The presentations are mostly mediated towards the younger audience, but lacks immersion to be truly entertaining as well complexity to be truly educating. The well preserved ship is the true master piece of the museum, but a modern visitor would expect more than a dark dungeon encasing the ship, which gives the museum a somewhat 'dusty' atmosphere. The general surroundings of the museum(especially the fiord in the 'backyard') are definitly able to provide visitors a more interesting experience, if the museum sought to include these in future installments.
  • Splendid museum. Great video presentation.
  • Amazing viking artifacts
