  • Museum consist of some paying activities, three ships. The ships built as per viking costums you could see and visit without paying the fee. Would not visit this museum based on my experience. 
  • An interactive museum with the option to try out the crafts for the construction of the vikingskych ships. Large hall with preserved torzy ships. It is situated in the Bay of the former capital.

  • Fantastic museum! nonetheless! (and great bear)(and lovely surroundings)(and..) Just go visit the place!! It really is great!
  • Great information on the building of viking boats with live demonstrations of construction techniques. More than just a museum. Be sure to make use of the guided tours.
  • Good place to visit. However the ticket is quite expensive. Has a decent cafe.
  • I love the view and the surroundings, and I think they've done a really nice job on the museum island. The inside of the museum is most interesting for grownups, but outside is fine for kids.
  • It's very interesting to see the old ships and everything is very well explained. Prices are extremely high though and besides the ships themselves, nothing else is impressive in the museum.
