The area marked "Ställplats" is chargeable. The fee is payable at the entrance shop.
Wheelchair-bound people have free admission. The Viking town consists of reconstructed Viking Age houses which wheelchairs may have difficulties entering and thus can not benefit from the full Viking town experience.
If you bring an extra wide baby stroller, it is possible that it does not fit through the door of the store entrance, please contact the staff at the counter so they can open the gate for you outside the building.
You are allowed to bring dogs but they must be leashed throughout the visit as there are chickens and sheep freely walking in the Viking town.
Your own food may only be consumed at the tables facing the sea outside the entrance building. Any waste must be placed in the garbage bin at the entrance building.
Barbecuing is only permitted at the barbecue area (the concrete pipe). NOTE disposable barbecues are not allowed, only loose charcoal, briquettes or wood may be used.
To clarify, the museum's opening hours are 10 am to 5 pm, but entry must be made before 4 pm when the entrance shop closes.
