2014 is over, and it’s time to tally up the fantastic year at the Viking Museum at Ladby.

There were 29,600 guests at the museum in 2014, compared to 22,750 the year before, giving an increase of 30%. This increase can be seen across the categories, as there were more foreign visitors, more groups, more children and more paying guests. This makes it clear that the Viking Museum is for everyone!

All of the months of 2014 showed an increase compared to the same months in 2013, so the growth happened throughout the year. This is the fourth year in a row that the museum has set visitor records, in recent times. Therefore, there is extra reason to cheer about the Kerteminde Town Council’s decision just before Christmas to create a Local Development Plan for the area around the Viking Museum at Ladby. This will assure space to significantly expand the museum, giving even better facilities for interpretation of the Viking period for future visitors.
