Sagastad Viking Center is an exciting experience center for the whole family. Here you will become familiar with Viking history from Nordfjordeid, a story about kings, power struggles, great journeys, mythology and mystical rituals.
Get on board the 30-metre long Myklebust ship - a reconstruction of Norway's largest known Viking ship. Play your way through the exhibition with an VR experience and interactive installations. Watch the cinema "A Viking burial" and test your knowledge about the Vikings' voyages and journeys around the world.
The exhibition in the center is available in Norwegian, English, and from 2023 also in German. In addition, you can use an audio guide in Spanish, French, Mandarin, English and German at no additional cost. For the audio guide, you use your own smartphone, and free WiFi at the centre. We recommend bringing your headphones along.
Sagastad is a modern center that opened in 2019. The unique, black signal building that houses the ship and the exhibitions is a revelation in itself. We have no doubt that this is the world's most beautiful boathouse!
The center is located close to the fjord in the center of the rural town of Nordfjordeid. Exactly halfway between the coast with the surfing paradise of Hoddevika and the magnificent Vestkapp plateau, and at the other end high mountains with a view of turquoise waters and glaciers in Loen and Olden. No matter where in Nordfjord you stay, Sagastad is no more than about an hour by car.
Welcome to the Viking Age!
