  • An interesting Museum. What else in such a city. is beautiful, dss children can be there also very active. You may be too loud and umher romp. So isn't in all museums. The cafe offers delicious and well-made food for little money instead. Can I recommend

  • 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.
