Some information prior to your visit to the museum


For the benefit of everyone please follow the signs. 

During normal museum season is parking at the museum parking place free of charge. If the parking lot is full you can park on the meadow just to the left before the entrance to the parking lot.  Please do not park normal cars on the motorhome parking lots. 

During the Viking market is the usual parking lot closed to the public and special paid parking places* are established nearbyu outside the museum area.

Motorhome parking and quickstop

Motorhomes should park along the trees as indicated by the signs during daytime. After 18.00 these places are used by the quick stop. The area marked as "Ställplats" is a quickstop that requires a fee to stay at when the museum is not open. The fee is paid in the museum entrance shop. When the museum is closed the fee is paid to the licensed caretaker. 

Other things of note

Assistants of 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 fully benefit from the Viking town experience.

If you bring an extra wide baby stroller, it may not fit through the door of the entrance shop. If this is the case please contact the staff at the counter so they can open the side gate outside the building for you.

You are allowed to bring dogs but they must be leashed throughout the visit as there may be chickens and sheep freely moving around in the Viking town.

Your own brought 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 single use grills are not allowed, only loose charcoal, briquettes or firewood may be used.

To clarify, the museum's opening hours are 10 am to 5 pm (10.00 - 17.00), but you must enter before 4 pm (16.00) when the entrance shop closes.

* The temporary parking lot is on the riding school land and staffed by the riding school. The parking fee is charged by the riding school to cover their costs associated with the car park and the restoration of the land afterwards.
