Experience Rooms

Stand in the middle of the Viking marketplace or experience the construction of Ribe Cathedral.

At the far end of the exhibition, you can enter into the Experience Room, where history is brought to life.

Experience the ambiance in the middle of Viking Ribe on an April day in the year 800. We have recreated parts of the marketplace and a Viking ship in their actual size. Go down into the ship’s belly and get a feel for dried fish and other Nordic products.

Then continue onwards into Ribe on a September day in the year 1500. Here, you will find yourself in the middle of a building site where children are playing and the baker’s wife is peddling bread from her shop in the gables.
