Vikings in Museums

Glass cases or not?

Not all museum exhibits are behind glass cases. Museums about Viking culture include reconstructions that you can touch and engage with, as can be seen in the reconstructions that you can climb on at Roskilde Viking Ship Museum. Only by standing beside, in or on the ships and houses can we really get a sense of how the Vikings experienced these things.
