The Viking Museum in Stockholm

Giving more of the everyday of the Vikings where both men and women are part of, as of lately made into very reliable tv drama serie by the name Vikings on HBO making this an even more hot topic for all ages. 

I had not made it to Vikingaliv, the museum I had been told were devoted to telling the true story behind the myth of the Viking. 

So when the invite for The Viking Museum landed in my inbox, I made sure I could be there. 

Really enjoy the choice of showing both the men and the women of the Viking Age being 793..ish (since it´s being debated lately) -1066 AD a period in the history of the Scandinavians during which they expanded and built settlements throughout Europe and beyond. 

and when mom could join as well, we made to Djurgårdsvägen 47 
with Djurgårdsfärjan from Slussen.

Since Vikingaliv the museum was called 
The Viking Museum already,
 they decided to make it their new name. New name, new logo. 


A big thumbs up 
for the live performance of which this museum built. Weaving the wool to the sails is shown and you are invited to try with instructions.  

Can you imagine those big sails 
made in wool 
how when wet 
must have weighed tons. 

We are made aware of the everyday lifestyle of the real men and women of the Viking Age and that is really exciting. 

This describes 
all you get to experience at

Knowledgeable guides in Viking gear will answer all your questions and the many replicas let you explore life as a Viking with all your senses.  You will learn about the Viking raids, journeys and mastery in ship building as well as the everyday life at the farm. The Norse mythology is present everywhere and here myth meets truth.

My beautiful mom is 70+ and I am 50+ and as you see nine year old Elton, son of  Beauty and Lifestyle journalist Jessica Berghult is having a great time
