Viking Ship, Oslo. Great craftmanship... The vikingboats were the really fast race boats of the past! And they could even cross against the wind. We have many fine replicas under sail and it is sometimes possible to go for a trip. Roskilde and the one in Oslo in Norge are the best museums to go, If you are into vikingships and their history.
Viking History (Denmark). 'The Vikings were not just plunderers but successful traders, extraordinary mariners and insatiable explorers. Getting a feel for the Viking era is easy, whether visiting the ship-burial ground of Ladby, the Viking forts of Zealand, the longship workshops at Roskilde or the museums that seek to re-create the era with live re-enactments.' http://www.lonelyplanet.com/denmark
