Museum Ribes Vikings

The Museum Ribe's Vikings is beautifully situated in central Ribe overlooking the river Ribe Å. Experience the Viking era and the Middle Ages. Thousands of artefacts found during archaeological excavations in the area tell the interesting history of Ribe from the year 700 to the year 1700.

Explore Ribe’s history by taking a stroll down the market place in the year 800 and step aboard a reconstructed Viking ship like a true Viking setting out to explore the world. Then, after just a few steps, you can stand on a street corner of Ribe in the year 1500.

Experience the exhibition The Christian Vikings, which tells the tale of the first Christian Vikings in Denmark, and the significant change from heathenry to Christianity. Open until 17.04.17.

Watch a film about Ribe’s Vikings, excavate in the archaeological sandpit, explore the large museum shop or visit the activity room "Dagmar and Valdemar", where you can dress up in costumes, joust like a medieval knight or step into a medieval home.

Welcome to the world of the gods from 18th June2016. Rest in the shadow of tree of life, Yggdrasil, and read the fascinating stories of the Old Norse Gods while you lean on the great snake from Midgard. You can also do the giant puzzles or write messages in runes. Or what about a quick look at what the humans in Mitgard are doing - try the magic binoculars. ASGARD is a quiet corner for children and their families, where we unfold the stories of the Old Norse Gods.
