  • Very big museum a lot of things to see
  • 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.
  • This island is very impressive, you can see most of it here. A must!
  • Those stone tablets on display are so interesting.
  • It is great to see as a once off.
