Prices and open hours

N.B Due to the corona virus the spring programme has been changed. The museum now opens for the season on the 6th of June!

(This change does not apply to booked group tours or school activities, these will take place as usual.)

Due to the Corona crisis the Foteviken Viking Museum will act as a normal open air museum this year. Our fantastic buildings and Viking Age environments are open to visitors, and you may still encounter a few Vikings active in the area.

Remember to keep your distance from others! At most 10 people may be inside the museum entrance shop at a time. The shop will not serve any food this year -- instead we can warmly recommend the newly opened restaurant Smokey BBQ & Pickles by the museum parking lot, with an amazing menu full of culinary experiences. 

The museum area has been divided into zones this year. At most 50 people may be within each zone. 

You are most welcome to visit us during these difficult times!

Some information prior to your visit to the museum

During normal museum season is parking at the museum parking place free of charge.
During the viking market is the usual parking lot closed to the public and special paid parking places* established outside the area.

There are special spots for campers. There is also a special spot for touring coaches. For everyone's comfort please respect the parking signs.
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. If this is the case please contact the staff at the counter so they can open the gate outside the building for you.

You are allowed to bring dogs but they must be leashed throughout the visit as there are chickens and sheep freely walking around 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.

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