The exhibition of the discovery of the ships to their excavation, exhibition and reconstruction was really interesting. It was good to see the actual timbers from the ships and their size, it was also fun to dress up in the costumes and pose for photographs in the reconstructed boat. The film of the voyage over to Ireland was simply amazing. Outside there was also plenty to see and do, from shield painting, nail and rope making to the reconstructed ships in the harbour. My husband and son-in-law had hoped to be able to go out on one of the ships but we has visited the exhibitions indoors first and by the time we went outside to try and book the trips, there was only one place left. This was probably because it was the last day of the boat trips as they finish for the winter on 30th September. So they had to just visit the harbour exhibits while my daughter and I used swinging bobbins to create a wool rope. The cafe made nice hot chocolate and also had some nice looking cakes, there were toilets inside the exhibition building and also outside in the harbour area There was also a restaurant close to the car park. We got there by walking from the station at Roskilde through the park which was quite a pleasant walk taking a good 20mins but decided to return to the station by bus.
