The government of Denmark has dedicated a national museum to their ships and the museum is known as The Viking Ship Museum. Situated beside the Roskilde Fjord, the museum exhibits the ancient Danish sea faring traditions. It was built to show those five Viking ships which were sunk in 1070 to protect the Roskilde Fjord from pirates. The place is a children favorite, as they have much to explore.
- The museum has small shops selling the replicas of the five Viking ships at affordable price to the visitors.

If you are into boats and history this is an incredible museum. They do “experimental archeology” where they reconstruct the boats and invite visitors to sail them in the fjord. There is an incredible find of 5 real Viking boats that were scuttled in the fjord over 1000 years ago. This museum is very interactive and especially good for kids or those who are young at heart.
The sailing in a reconstructed ship is a wonderful experience as is the tour of the reconstructed ships, tying knots, floating your own ships. It would be nice if there was a larger quantity and variety of tools for making model ships though. The staff are very nice and great at explaining how everything works and the historical facts.
An amazing experience! The entrance is included in the Copenhagen card, so we spontaneously decided to have a gasp. We stayed for two hours, especially watching a viking boat replica being built. There is much to not only see but also to touch and try out. Highly recommended!
What a lovely and peaceful place to walk around and take in, and admire the fascinating history of the vikings. And to actually see real exhibits of original viking boats found in the seas nearby is absolutely mind blowing. This is really a great museum to learn from. And you can see, there's a lot of work building and restoring going on too.
Very interesting museum about the vikings, their ships, as well as maritime archeology. You can leisurely walk around to look at the ships or take part in various handcrafts. The rebuild ships using old methods and technologies are really spectacular.
