The Viking Ship Museum

Located by the fjord in Roskilde, a mere 35 minutes from Copenhagen, the Viking Ship Museum in Roskilde offers a unique experience to adults and children alike. 

Feel the history when you are faced with five original Viking ships or even sail on the Roskilde Fjord yourself.

The impressive ships reveal stories about war and raids on trade and travel to distant places, and about life at sea 1000 years ago.

Summer Viking activities

At the boatyard you can follow the construction of a Viking ship. At the boat builder's workshop you can try out your oak and Viking tools skills. Work with glowing iron in the forge, weave willow or cut beautiful wooden designs.

Discover the impressive collection of Viking ships and other Nordic boats in the museum's beautiful harbour, and take a sailing trip on a reconstructed Viking ship.

During the summer season you will find a long list of activities and exhibitions.
