My Norwegian friend unfortunately passed away a few weeks ago and he introduced me to the Viking world.
One time we both were meant to go here but it was closed in the evening.
Last week in his honour I returned and what an amazing insight into the Viking world.
But please... I live here in Stavanger and please PLEASE do not buy viking memorabilia with horns!!! There has never been one found, they would have snagged on trees etc and the would have been stupid to fit! It is an embarrassment to the Viking honour.
A tour guide will take you around at 1200 in English. CHeap to get in (about £5) and you will see some amazing runestones, skeletons, jewellery, costumes etc.
Outside has games for the kids.
A nice cafe inside also serves some nice snacks.
Definately worth a visit off the cruise ships!
