Full description

Jump back to the 10th century and experience the fabled Viking era as if you were really there. Through hourly tours, conducted in either English or Swedish, get a real impression of what life was like for the Vikings — from bloody battles and vicious plundering, to idyllic farm life and a complex system of religious belief.  You’ll even come face to face with a model of life-sized Viking, created using DNA recovered from centuries-old remains, along with countless other artifacts and impressive reconstructions. You can also take advantage of the free audio guide at the Viking Museum.

Hop on the thrilling ride, Ragfrid’s Saga, to get a real taste of a Viking’s daily life, told from the perspective of a Viking warrior’s wife. To cap it all off, grab a bite at Glöd, the museum’s modern Nordic restaurant, with sweeping views of the Stockholm harbor.

    Out of all the museums we went to in Stockholm, this was our favorite. It is covered with interesting facts about the Viking era, way of life, mythology, and so on. The Viking Ride is one more special touch of this museum, entertainment for all ages. Definitely deserves to be on your Stockholm To-Do List!

    We didn't get to the Viking Museum the day before without prior booking, so we used GetYourGuide and were satisfied. The guests in front of us were all turned away, but we were able to enter with the QR codes. First you go to the first floor, where you can visit the Viking Museum. Then you go back down to the ride, which could be done a little better (smells, wind and water were missing and existed elsewhere decades ago), since you only see standing figures, where a story is being told by different speakers. Hence 4 stars.

    Fue una muy linda experiencia. El museo es bastante interactivo, cuenta con audioguias y visitas guiadas dadas por muy buenos guias que interpretan a los vikingos de aquella época. Nuestro guia fue Alex, que dio la visita en inglés y estuvo genial, la recomendamos mucho. Hay mucho para leer y una cantidad de objetos aceptable para tratarse de un museo privado. Se requieren de varias horas si uno quiere leer cada una de las cosas que se presentan. Sino el museo se recorre relativamente rápido. Se enfoca la vida "vikinga" con diferentes abordajes lo que hace la experiencia apta para todo publico.
