What can you do?
During the summer you can learn from Vikings when they do their everyday chores and crafts in the village. If you want to try for yourself they will teach you what they know! For example you can try the blacksmiths hammer, create something out of wool, make a glass bead, or why not bake you own flatbread over the open fire? The rune master will teach you about the secrets of the runes, the signs that adorn over two tousand rune stones in Uppland. The Chief and Housewife will tell you everything you want to know about the life of the Vikings.
During certain times of the day you will hear the cow-horn. The signal indicates something special is about to happen! For example Viking games, a boat tour, singing and music, lectures, or maybe the storyteller arriving.
The museum is beautifully located by the lake Erken in a historical surrounding with many viking age remants. The museum has several reconstructed buildings that creates an authentic atmosphere. A big long hall is under construction.
In walking distance from the village there is a Vikign Age burial site and a nature preserve, next to the viking village is a child friendly sandy beach.
