pros: a small skansen with live attractions, toys and actitivties to try, kind staff, nice place, quality souvenirs in the shop, cafe, picnic places, fun for kids cons: small - but that's why it's enough 1-2 hours to get around

We have been here during viking market in April. Absolutely amazing experience. Real Vikings offer their goods, you can see their life, battle, you can buy various real vikings goods (we have knifes, cup, sheepskin :) You can taste very good beer, or some meal. Everyone who love viking history should come here!

Outdoor museum depicting the live of Vikings in Denmark. Best to visit when the weather is dry as most of the exhibits are outdoors. Great for a family outing, explore the village and interact with the Vikings.

This center is one of our favorite memories of Denmark. We are grateful that places like this exist to preserve history and the way of life of previous generations. The buildings are very authentic and even have wood burning pits inside where applicable. My kids loved the fighting lessons.

A definite "do" is to get the experience card when you buy your tickets. With the card, the user can shoot an arrow, make a silver coin, and use a drawknife. The kids enjoyed interacting with the animals and staff.

I visited for my sister's birthday - and we all had a wonderful time. Lots to see and do, and a great little gift shop on site (we were lucky enough to get our hands on a 'Viking cooking pot' for her as a birthday gift). They had reenactments and reconstructions on site, and everyone seemed very enthusiastic and absorbed... More

We toured this museum and I would rate it a little above average I guess. It was well done, but I was disappointed in that there were not more exhibits. What was there was very interesting and they did a great job of showing the placards in English as well as Danish. They had a lot of artifacts from the... More

On our way back to Holland we decided to take a little detour and went to visit this museum. Unfortunately we did not have enough time to really see everything. We just have to come back an other time and see the rest.

This is a good visit on a rainy day. English translation was nice for parts of this however majority of it was in Danish. About a 30 minute visit for 70$ Kroner.

We visited this center during our summer holidays in Denmark. I have 2 kids (8 and 4) and they really enjoyed the different activities, we bought the additional ticket for activities and that it is worth doing... Especially the viking training. In comparison with other viking museum in Roskilde, Ribe is much more entertaining and involving children more actively.
