If you want to learn about the Danish vikings and their amazing ships you have to see this museum. You'll not only learn about their long voyages on the sea to Norway, England, Ireland, Iceland, Greenland and North America but also about their daily life. The vikings found North America about 500 years before Christopher Columbus - they called the new land "Vinland". They also went through the European and Russian rivers - they went as far as Istanbul that they called "Miklagård".
In the big hall you'll see 5 original 11th century Viking ships, excavated from Roskilde Fjord in 1962 and you can see a film about how they excavated the ships.
The hall also houses an exhibition describing – hour by hour – a sea-borne assault on Roskilde by Vikings from Norway.
