Vikingworld is located at the seaside in the town of Reykjanesbær with a spectacular view of the Atlantic Ocean. Vikingworld is a five exhibition museum along with a settlement zoo, a playground and an outdoor classroom.
The biggest attraction of Vikingworld is the magnificent Viking ship the Icelander built by the Icelandic ship builder Mr Gunnar Marel Eggertsson in 1996 who used an authentic ninth century viking ship as a model. He concentrated on using the same material and methods as the Vikings did. But Gunnar did not stop at that but took the Icelandair on a journey and sailed it to New York in 2000 as a part of the millennial celebration of Leifur Eiríksson’s journey to the New World.
