Jump back to the 10th century and experience the fabled Viking era as if you were really there. Through hourly tours, conducted in either English or Swedish, get a real impression of what life was like for the Vikings — from bloody battles and vicious plundering, to idyllic farm life and a complex system of religious belief. You’ll even come face to face with a model of life-sized Viking, created using DNA recovered from centuries-old remains, along with countless other artifacts and impressive reconstructions. Hop on the thrilling ride, Ragfrid’s Saga, to get a real taste of a Viking’s daily life, told from the perspective of a Viking warrior’s wife. To cap it all off, grab a bite at Glöd, the museum’s modern Nordic restaurant, with sweeping views of the Stockholm harbor.
The museum is located in a beautiful spot. The exhibition is interesting and the ride is great. The staff is nice and friendly. There's also a nice shop and cafe. Altogether a worthwhile experience!

What an experience! The walk was intensive, yet really rewarding! There is absolutely no sound of the city at all, and we spotted a lot of wild animals during our hike. The organiser gave us plenty of food and beverages to take on our trip, and the sandwich tasted like heaven!
What an interactive way to discover the old city (Gamla Stan)! The stories were very interesting and fascinating, and our guide Callum was truly amazing and a very kind and funny person!
Great landscape. Friendly, experienced guide with a lot of background on the area.

Terrific commentary. Clean comfortable boat. Highly recommend.
