Overview

The Museum Ribe's Vikings is beautifully situated in central Ribe overlooking the river Ribe A. 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 temporary exhibition The Christian Vikings (April 12th 2014 - January 3rd 2016), which tells the tale of the first Christian Vikings in Denmark, and the significant change from heathenry to Christianity. 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. Children under 18 years free admission.

Excellent museum in a lovely little town. Includes street dioramas and a full size ship etc. Well organised and presented, friendly staff and a great little gift shop too. Well worth a visit. Paul Jonsson, Woking, UK.

Small museum about Vikings and the Middle Ages in Ribe located next to the train station. The exhibition is intriguing, however the displays are only partly translated into English. And the exhibition upstairs is only in Danish. The staff is friendly and helpful and there...More

The museum itself is well laid out but I would strongly recommend you get them to turn on the 30 minute film before you walk around as it will make the experience much more informative. No english translation on the top floor exhibition is disappointing...More

Rather small museum provides a glimpse way back in time with dioramas of Ribe's history and that of the Vikings. Good interactive / participatory exhibits for children. Significant narratives with limited language translation, this limits the educational value to non-Danish speakers.

In this museum you experience Ribe's history between the years 700 - 1700. Definitely a must see when you visit Ribe.
