Delightful outing
Aug 2020
Really enjoyed the employees dressed in costume, it felt very authentic. It's a fun outing with some small activities. I tried the long bow, made a silver coin, and carved a stick. The lunch was surprisingly good, a lot of food for a good price.

Wonderful day with vikings
Jun 2020
The visit to Ribe Viking Center was very exciting. I was able to put my hand on various attractions and try archery, woodwork, knitting with needle. The vikings who were in the houses were happy to answer the questions and I gained a lot of new knowledge. The Center also has a farm with many animals: cows, sheep’s, pig with piglets and some friendly cats. In the middle of the day there was an exciting bird show and in addition you could see a cool performance where viking played with fire and did some juggling.

Dog friendly museum -
Sep 2019
Like several museums we visited in Denmark (and Sweden) they were dog friendly and outdoors.

Whilst I wouldn't want to be wandering around here on a rainy day it was wonderful.

There was plenty to see including rather amazing falconry display, horse riders, viking cooking and wonderful scenery and location.

The dogs loved the experience as much as we did. Also has a nice shop and very friendly staff.

Interesting 'living museum'
Aug 2019 • Family
This is a good place to visit with kids. It allows the visitor to see what life might have been like in viking times, showing various aspects of life, from religion to daily chores to fun and games. Lots of 'volunteer vikings' are present around the site, happy to chat and explain if you talk to them. There is the opportunity for various hands-on activities, e.g. flatbread making, archery, whittling, coin making. Overall this was a good day out.

A "Living Museum".
Aug 2019
While this "Viking Centre" is quite recent-- it is meant to provide an "accurate historical perspective" of this aspect of Denmark's historical evolution! The Museum is outdoors and the several completed buildings use authentic remnants of buildings and craftsmen using historical tools (NOTE: a church is now being built). Some of the large "wooden posts" weigh as much as 700 kgs/1540 pounds. Many volunteers dress in "Viking costumes" and assist in the many ongoing projects! The Viking Centre has been awarded TripAdvisor's "Certificate of Excellence". The Centre, and its many "period" activities/exhibits is enjoyed by "kids of all ages"! It is definitely worthy of a visit!

I hope that this Review has been helpful.

A great afternoon
Aug 2019 • Family
A great hands on museum, the children enjoyed archery, making a coin and whittling a stick (these 3 activities cost additional to the entrance fee). We had a pleasant lunch in the cafe.

Place to be visited with kids
Jul 2019
I suggest this place to spend a day outdoor to discover the Viking culture. Here you can see the houses, the buildings and to get in touch with their habits and kids can try different activities. You can have a pic-nic or have lunch in a self-service restaurant.
