However, the Viking Ship Museum remained open. Visitors can go through the Viking Ship Hall from 10 AM to 4 PM.

The Viking Ship Hall is placed on Roskilde Habour. Its permanent exhibition hosts the five Skuldelev ships and tells the history of the ships as well as the history of the Nordic maritime trips during the Viking Age.

The Hall was designed by professor Erik Christian Sørensen.

Buildings secured

Storms hit the area during the weekend, and water levels were greatly elevated, so the Viking Ship Museum secured its buildings against water on Friday. 

Now the high tide is on its way back, and on Monday morning, the demanding clean-up work began. 

To facilitate the clean-up and ensure that no one is injured, access to Museumsøen and Café Knarr was blocked on Monday so that the heavy part of the clean-up could take place.

The museum announced that access would be granted again from Tuesday, February 1.
