Expansion of the Viking Museum

19. January 2015 | Vikingemuseum Ladby

The Kerteminde Town Council, at a council meeting in on December 18, 2014, voted on a local development plan for the area around the Viking Museum at Ladby, making it possible to expand the museum over the next few years. The expansion will create space for new exhibitions, a harbour for Viking ships in the fjord, more parking space, a café, teaching workshops, a Viking playground for children and the re-creation of the Viking-era landscape. In all, the acreage of the museum will increase by 15 acres (6 hectares).

The expansion will make it possible to exhibit all 600 of the objects found during excavations at the Ladby Ship, many of which are still at the National Museum. There will also be space for special exhibitions, an historical workshop for school groups and workshops for volunteer handcrafting, for example a blacksmith shop and a fire pit for cooking.

The museum’s architect, Poul Ingemann, is putting the final touches on sketches for the new building. Then the final project description will be written, followed by grant-writing to obtain funding for the expansion that the local development plan has made possible.
