Wonderful museum with Viking ship remains recovered from the sea and replicas using old building techniques. Step by step video was incredible.

Watching the modern Vikings carving the wood and actually building recreations of the ancient ships inside was the most interesting part of the museum. Plus there's a great gift shop!

Then, outdoor, there are the "workshops" ... construction of new long-boats, to scale, using copies of the original tools...More
