When the wrecks of several viking ships were found in the Roskilde Fjord in the 60s, it was only natural that a museum be erected on the shore to host them. The Viking Ship Museum is a leading institution in the history of viking sea travel. They offer sailing trips on the fjord on replica ships in the summer but the real treat is the adjacent boatyard where viking ships are reconstructed using authentic tools and techniques.
It's about a 25 minute walk from the train station (visit the Cathedral on the way). www.vikingeskibsmuseet.dk/page.asp?sideid=164&zcs=402
