Meet the Vikings! At Borg in Lofoten, the largest longhouse in the world of the Vikings has been found - and reconstructed. Upon entering the 83 meter longhouse, you embark on a journey more than an 1000 years back in time. In addition to the Viking Chieftain's house, the museum offers modern exhibition halls with archaeological artifacts, and the story of the finding and excavation of Borg. In the film theatre, we show a short drama-film. During summer, the Viking ship is moored at the seaside, 20 min walk from the Chieftain's house. June 15 - end August guests may participate in Viking activities, such as rowing the Viking ship and trying their hand at archery. All year, different Viking meals are being served, check web for more info. The museum is open all year - check home page for hours as it varies through the year.

We came here by car and stopped by the museum which is situated Near E 10. It is near the Borge church. After the museum visit we felt hungry and found a restaurant nearby and found good food there.

The Vikingmuseum gives a good impression of equipment and clothing of the Vikings. The attendants in the longhouse show and explain how the Vikings lived. Absolutely well worth a visit.
