The Vikings are known as being violent and ruthless warriors. However, they were also farmers, skilled craftsmen and traders. On display at the VÍKINGR exhibition you will find familiar and exquisite artefacts representing different aspects of life, death and society. 

The exhibition portrays three important aspects of the Viking Age: journeys, warriors and a changing society. Vikingr is the Norse word for Viking and it was used by seafarers, maritime warriors and long-distance travellers. Today the word vikingr is used to describe anyone with Norse origins who lived during the Viking Age. You can read more about the exhibition on the webpages of the museum.

Through a guided tour you will get the chance to learn more about this interesting topic, which is an important part of Norwegian history.
