Bij mijn bezoek aan Denemarken wilden we ook een Viking museum bezoeken, het was helaas toen gesloten. Zo te zien een mooi modern gebouw met deze dingen uit de oudheid.

Groeten, Erik

Toen moesten ze de schepen zeker nog opgraven ;>). Het is zeker een bezoek waard,

Very nice mood and great composition Nørrel! Is this truly a real Viking ship? How wonderful! Our maritime museum has nothing so ancient.

We have a replica Viking ship (half scale) in Vancouver that you might be interested in.

Hi Nawitka. Yes, there are some real vikingships exposed in the museum. They have found several sunken ships in Roskilde Fjord. the remains of the ships are put together, the missing parts of the ship are outlined by an iron frame, to get an image of what the ship has looked like. You can also sail in a replica of a viking ship on Roskilde Fjord.

No wonder they sank. They're missing half of the rest of the ship!

LOL! They should have contacted larry e walton about their construction methods.

hey, now yer getting into marine engineering. outta my league. but the center of buoyancy on these vessels ... oh, never mind!

i like this shot norrel, and i like the architecture of this museum too.

Norrel on September 8, 2009

LOL, Larry! I agree with you on the architecture. The windows offer a look on the Roskilde Fjord, a famous natural harbour in Viking times. The viking ships that are on display here are found in this fjord.
