    Museum

    At the museum at Birka you can learn more about the exciting history of Vikings through the fascinating exhibitions which depict what day to day life in Birka would have been like during Viking Age. Discover the archaeological findings from the excavations and join a guided tour to really understand this important part of Stockholm’s and Birka’s history.
