Do you want to learn a bit more about Danish heritage? Are you looking for a fun adventure for the whole family? Have you become mildly obsessed with ‘Norsemen’ or ‘Vikings’?

If you said yes to any of these questions there is no better place to go than the Roskilde Viking Ship Museum. It’s time to sail through history.

Impressive collection
The museum boasts an impressive collection of boats, including five 1,000-year-old original ships from the Viking Age and a fleet of reconstructed sailing ships.

With a variety of talks and tours you will have all your questions answered and then some about the Vikings’ epic history.

Home to crafts people
The museum is also home to many crafts people you can meet who keep up Viking traditions and building practices.

Those interested can take a crack at a few old Viking maritime trades.
