  • A great place to kill a few hours if you go slow. Not everything is super interesting, but there is a lot of history to go through. Take your time and read the facts...that is what makes everything cool!
  • Amazing place
  • Mandatory place to visit
  • Jättefint och intressant. Barnen fick testa på att vara vikingar och flera av utställningarna tilltalade dem även tack vare att de var så pass visuella. Vi kom tidigt och då var det lätt att parkera, ej heller så dyrt (4 timmar, 60 kr), men senare såg jag att det var fullt. Så kommunalt är att föredra när man åker hit. Väl värt ett besök!
  • Agradable y amplio para conocer la cultura sueca.
