Et vikingskip som seiler

Sail or row the Viking ship

The Viking ship “Vargfotr” is moored in the harbour area, by the boathouse. Several boats are displayed inside the boathouse.



The café serves food and drinks inspired by ingredients known in the Viking Age.

The café is open to everyone and is located in the arrivals facility. You are welcome in for a lovely break from your museum visit. Here you can find both hot and cold food, refreshments and cakes. Try our homemade bread with locally produced cheese, salmon or lamb sausage. Or maybe homemade cakes with blueberries or cranberries more tempting.

The café follows the museum’s opening hours and you do not need an entrance fee to visit us here.

Museum Shop

The museum shop has a rich selection of goods related to the Viking Age and history.

Here you will find non-fiction, historical jewellery, replicas of historic glassware, pearls and games. We have gift items such as locally made soaps, herbs, tea, cheese and jams. We also have a rich selection of wool products, t-shirts, toys and other souvenirs. Not sure what you want to buy as a gift for someone? We sell gift cards that can be used in the museum shop, entrance to the museum and in our café.
