  • When we were there they had some entertainment, not bad at all. Normally, you can see how the Vikings lived and lived. You should visit so I recommend the Viking market. Wonderful, many stalls where you can buy almost everything related to the Viking age.

  • During the Viking age, there was a large summer market at Foteviken which, according to the Faeroese saga was the largest in Scandinavia. The modern-day Viking market also attracts the many Vikings.

  • The Museum is located in a beautiful location directly on the sea. The reception was friendly and even on German present the information leaflets. Currently, the entrance fee is 110 SEK (approx. €11) for adults. The outdoor facility was unfortunately a very unkempt condition with their house! The houses in part heruntergekommenen down and dirty. In the exhibition part of the cottage, we could find a moldy celery what surprised us a little. All in all was a beautiful Museum's several years ago, but gone are those days! The best thing about the museum visit was the gorgeous views of the Öresund bridge.

  • This place is unique. There's nothing like it in Europe. Almost 30 buildings arranged in a village style. During high season there are 20-25 employees plus volunteers. The market week the village is populated by around 600 vikings!
  • We went first thing in the morning. It may have been too early as there was very little going on in the buildings. I'd hoped to see more things being made or crafting where we could get involved. The weather was lovely and it wasn't too busy so we had a pleasant time. There is a great view of the bridge to Denmark. We took a path around the side that took us past a bee hive. It would be helpful to have a sign nearby showing 'danger bees' for people who are allergic. I appreciated the English translations when available otherwise it's hard to really appreciate what you are seeing. We spent about 90 minutes here. We took the bus from Malmö Hyllie and it was easy to find our way on foot from the bus stop, 10-15 min walk.
  • Beautiful place to visit with friends or family. Try to come there in summer where you can experience 'real life ' vikings. Very interesting and a lot to see and learn.
  • Worth to visit this viking museum. You can see the daily life of the early vikings presented by staff of the museum who wearing custom and acting as if they are living there.
  • They don't claim to be "real" vikings, but they want to seem real in order to make a great atmosphere, and they succeeded in. The staff is very skilled and the village is really dramatic. It worths a visit
