Midgard viking Centre is part of Vestfold Museums IKS. It was opened on 27 May 2000 by HMS Queen Sonja and has as main objective to offer immersive learning experiences about the Viking Age in Vestfold. In 2013 the Viking Hall was opened after evidence of historical halls were discovered next to the burial mounds in 2007.
