Lots of original details from the Viking time. Modern, well adapted for kids, and very enjoyable by adults. Don't forget the gold chamber! We pay the museum at least one visits per year.

I can highly recommend this museum. It is a really well thought out museum with fantastic artefacts and displays. My only criticism is that some of the tours are not in English :(
