Wonderful exhibition of the Viking Boats that were excavated from Roskilde Fjord. Lots of information about the excavation and also a bit about Vikings in general. Could have had a bit more Viking objects on display.

Our Rick Steves tour took advantage of this free museum. The history of the Viking age was well covered, and the exhibits are educational for visitors of all ages.
