This project presents a proposal for a new Viking Ship Museum in Roskilde, designed with focus on an immersive and educational experience that showcases Viking history, culture, and maritime heritage. This will be achieved through an inviting and aesthetically pleasing architecture of the new Museum, where the interior layout and indoor climate control, as well as comfort, will be taken into consideration.

The paper examines in-depth indoor climate conditions such as lighting, illumination hours, ventilation and temperature to ensure the preservation of the artifacts. Furthermore, examinations about load-bearing structural systems and Life Cycle Assessment regarding the choice of materials are included to make the project as ecologically sustainable as possible.

Lastly, indoor and outdoor activities will be integrated as well as acoustic, atmospheric, thermal, and visual comfort in the exhibition areas to ensure comfort and a well-rounded and engaging experience for the visitors.

The result is the New Viking Ship museum; A museum that ensures the visitors´ comfort and provides interactive and engaging experiences through spatial layout, placement of functions, and materials. Likewise, thermal, acoustic, and visual comfort is attained as well as a structural system that ensures safety and structural integrity.
