The exhibition - prehistoric period (until 1050 AD)

The exhibition includes unique archaeological treasures like the Trundholm Chariot of the Sun, the Egtved girl’s grave, the Gundestrup cauldron, the Hoby tomb and much more. It takes you back into Danish prehistory and gives you an unique insight in the prehistoric humans, their activities and thoughts.

Meet the Vikings

Designer Jim Lyngvild and experts from the National Museum of Denmark have made a new exhibition on the Vikings. The exhibition opens on November 26th and visitors will be able to put a face to Denmark’s rough and ready ancestors. Several pieces of the museum’s iconic Viking jewellery are worn by lifelike Vikings that put a face to the housewife, warrior, berserker, völva and peasant as they probably looked when alive, complete with tattoos and the traces of too much sun, sea water and heavy food.
