Rosala Viking Center

The Rosala Viking Center is a museum and visitor center in the south of Finland. Its main purpose is to describe the history of the archipelago and Viking-era Finland. The emergence of the Viking village began in 1992 when, inspired by the archaeological excavations at Kyrksundet, the first reconstructed Viking building was built on the site, the longhouse “Farmansgården.” Since then, several buildings and other reconstructions have been added over the years. As of now, there are 30 points of interest on Rosala’ Viking Center’s guide map, ranging from a runestone with carvings to the pride of the Viking village, the impressive chieftain’s hall known as “Rodeborg.”

All development of the Viking village is financed privately, meaning the income from museum and tourism activities. The entrance fees are fully dedicated to maintaining and enhancing the museum’s exhibitions.
