  • What a fantastic day out. The Viking Ship Museum was brilliant, staff were friendly and happy to answer any questions. It's good for the whole family. There is a little workshop with tools and wood. Kids can make their own boats and try them out in a designated pool to test them 😊. We went on a Sunday, which was very quiet. The little cafe was open which was lovely. So glad we made this museum one of our stops on our weekends away in Copenhagen. It was only a 35min train journey, reasonably priced and a regular service. A definite must for people that like Viking History ☺️.
  • A really nice, and informative museum. It is not just display of the old viking ships but also, the workshop where you can build something yourself or watch as works are being done, the very knowledgeable staff who are friendly and ready to answer your questions and all the little details that provide you with a really idea of how things were. I really enjoyed it and would totally recommend this museum be it for young ones or adults. Around the museum area, there is a restaurant but also area where you can lid on the grass and have a nice view of the water
