The Viking past of the archipelago is brought to life in the Rosala Viking Centre in a museum displaying, among other things, finds from the archaeological investigations at Örsund (currently Kyrksundet).
The Viking Age (800-1050 A.D.) is illuminated in varied and interesting ways. The experience is like opening a window and getting a look at a living past! You get to walk around in a complete Viking village with reconstructed buildings from the Viking Age–including the chieftain hall, a smithy and a herb garden–imagining what peoples lives where like in Finland during the Iron Age.
In addition to the Viking village and our two Viking ships Alvilda and Hogland, there are three separate exhibitions, about which you can learn more on the Exhibitions page.
Our guide map gives you a birds-eye view of what’s available.
