  • The museum was definitely worth the trip from Copenhagen and is good value if you have the Copenhagen city card, as rail travel is included and museum entry. Roskilde itself is a really lovely town...

  • We visited on a sunny day and there were lots of outside activities as well as the visit into the museum to see the ships. We also buy an extra ticket to sail on a boat. This was a disappointment...

  • Simply speaking if you're interested in Vikings - there are better options. Go to Lejre to see King's Hall, or go to National Museum of Denmark in Copenhagen. Yeah there are nicely preserved boats...

  • Perfectly fine for what it is (viking boats) but it's quite a small museum, and for the size, expensive. Probably a good choice for people really passionate about viking ships, but for the general public you're perhaps better off walking along the fjord and enjoying the boats outdoors for free
  • It's beautiful, I won't deny that. But the entrance fee for such a tiny museum is not worth it. Definitely too expensive for what you get. The church was a much nicer experience for way less money.
  • Great museum! I strongly recommend the English guide to the Main Hall at 13:00. Don't forget to grab lunch at the Coffee Shop as well ! The food was yummy. 🥗😋
  • Wonderful place. Very good exhibitions and activities (take a Viking boat and try to sail through the fjord!) Perfect Tour guides!
  • Great museum where you can learn about the Vikings and their ships. They build replica's on the museum ground which is very impressive to see. The guided tour ik English was very helpful too.
