The Viking Ship Museum - Review

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.

  • This museum provides you with a really cool experience in Viking history! The staff was very courteous and helpful and also joked and made light about one of the Viking ships that had been stuck on a sandbar waiting rescue. However everyone showed great sense of humor about it! Which I see I clearly display this aspect of my Danish heritage on a daily basis. However, I’m just glad I wasn’t on the ship! No worries they all came back;) If anyone is looking for a fun museum this one will not disappoint! Amazing artifacts, unbelievable Viking ship display and if your feeling up to the challenge; you can go out exploring on a Viking ship, watch for the sandbars;) Great staff, great museum and great memories!!

  • I may be a bit biased as today is a perfect day but this place is great if you have any level of interest in history or the Vikings in particular. Great outdoor ambience and good displays of the original boats. The Cafe is highly recommended for the Nordic food.

  • Though we visited during the winter the center still has much to offer. Extremely friendly and informative guide available in English made our experience unforgettable. My daughter and I learned much about Roskilde and the ways of the ancient Norse peoples.

  • How often do you get to dress up like a viking and row a ship of the era out to sea? Not very. Such a fun experience!

  • Beautiful bay with a neat museum and pretty solid cafe. It’s a 20 minute walk from the train station, but it’s not too bad. Worth a trip from Copenhagen.
