Värmlands Viking Centre

Site Overview

Find out about the end of the Viking era, and how a Viking ship was built

At the Värmland Viking Centre (Värmlands Vikingacenter), you will see exhibits originally from the JORVIK Viking Centre in York, England, that show everyday life in a Viking-Age city.

We also have exhibits from the Skullsplitter exhibition in York. This tells us about the end of the Viking era and the battles of Fulford and Stamford Bridge in 1066.

Smaller exhibits are also on show. Find out about

  • Iron making
  • Viking-Age food
  • Norse mythology
  • The process of building the Viking ship 'Glad of Gillberga' in the years 1995-1998.

Close by is the Viking village, Gladhem, and the harbour for the Viking ship.
