Overview

Step into the Ladby Ship grave - Denmark's only Viking ship grave - and walk around the ship, where a Viking king in the early 900's was sent off on his last journey. See an exhibition about the ship and the ship grave, and follow along in the building of the full-size Ladby Ship and the sewing of the Ladby Tapestry.

We love everything to do with the Vikings and the chance to see a Viking ship still in its original burial mound was not to be missed! I won't go too much into the historical aspects of this mazing museum - other to say that...More

Don't expect a lot, yet what it has is good. It's not a complete ship but the impression of one that has decayed. The grave goods are gone, but remnants of the horses and dogs bones are there as well as other items. The museum...More

Amazing, breathtaking, moving. This was such a worthy off the beaten path site to see. The history of the only Viking burial ship, which is displayed expertly in the same place it was discovered, brings an extra atmosphere and a feel of living history rarely...More

This is a small museum dedicated to the find of the only viking burial ship found in Denmark. The original site is preserved and the museum houses an exhibit about the find and local viking settlements. Quite interesting and a bit unusual. Worth a visit...More

Staying in Kerteminde with friends and the Viking museum is a short drive away. Well worth a short visit to see the ship and a floating reconstruction set in the beautiful countryside.
