The Viking Museum in Stockholm is open daily. You can visit it on weekdays from 11:00 AM to 05:00 PM. It opens one hour earlier, at 10:00 AM, on Saturday and Sunday.
The Viking Museum is entirely dedicated to one of the most exciting times in Scandinavian history and takes you back to the period of around three hundred years between 800 and 1100. Its exhibition, based on historical facts and the most recent discoveries of Viking history, helps you understand who the Vikings really were.
The museum explains how the Vikings lived in a lively and interactive way. You can feel the weight of a Viking sword and helmet, discover their beliefs and the architecture of their houses, and fully immerse yourself in the daily life of these people through films, projections, and sound effects.
The main museum’s attraction is Ragnfrid’s Saga, an 11-minute captivating ride journey through 10th-century Europe. This adventure trail begins at a farm, and then you follow the Viking Harald, who has wasted all the family’s money and started his Viking Raid to win back his fortune and honor.
