Our on-site archaeologic museum also offers nice walks along gravel paths, to see the Viking ship, the reconstructed boat house and smithy. For outdoor walks, remember to dress according to the season of the year. Along the gravel paths you will find information posters on excavated sites, finds, burial mounds and more. NB. During winter, the viking ship, the smithy and the boathouse are not available due to snow. 

The museum is located close by the road E10. You will find a map here. Bus-stop (public transportation) is nearby. The administration staff is located in Prestegårdsveien road no 59, a few hundred meters away from the reconstructed chieftain´s house and the permanent displays .

We care for our environment:
- and work according to the system " Miljøfyrtårn". Miljøfyrtårn is a licenced system which we need to re-apply for every year, after having accomplished the demands of the system. It all reflects in our daily management of the museum, from waste recycling to how much paper we produce and how we deposit our waste.
