Frejs Utility Garden
At the museum we have a utility garden named after the Nordic god of fertility, Frej. In the beds of the garden, the plants of the Viking Age will be grown, and the museum’s guests will be able to follow the sowing and harvesting all year round.
The Ladby King’s farm
Follow the construction of The Ladby King’s farm. The reconstructed Viking Age farm will house both longhouses, smithy, and workshop houses, which will be framework for the Viking Age crafts.
The new longhouse in The Ladby King’s farm will be decorated with embroidered tapestries. The motifs for the new rugs are taken from local archaeological discoveries from Viking-era East Funen.
At the museum, we sew Viking costumes for both young and old. Fabric is dyed and embroidered on wool and linen. In the museum’s costume room you can also try on Viking clothes.
Maintenance of The Ladby Dragon
Every winter, the Viking ship The Ladby Dragon is towed ashore and maintained on an ongoing basis. The ship will be repaired, tarred, and painted to prepare it for sailing in the summer.
Sailing with The Ladby Dragon
During the summer, the Viking ship The Ladby Dragon can be experienced sailing on the inlet. A couple of times a week, the museum’s sailing group meets with The Ladby Dragon to try out the Viking Age sailing techniques.
