  • This museum is very nice with well-appointed bathrooms and Viking parts, runes and explanations of history and local culture. A space for children really too much and a restaurant with an interesting lunch.

  • This island is very impressive, you can see most of it here. A must!
  • Want to see Viking rune stones? This is the place to be. They have some fantastic ones. Also most of the museum is hands on, so children or easily bored adults will have a great time.
  • It is great to see as a once off.
  • Great museum but not the most obvious way to go through.
