Bronze Age stones and jewelry, Viking artifacts, pre-Viking picture stones and ancient coins are among the fascinating items on display at this excellent museum in Visby. But the highlight is the Spillings Hoard—a collection of Viking treasure discovered on the north of the island in 1999. The largest Viking treasure cache ever found, with 67 kilograms (148 pounds) of silver coins and other items and 20 kilograms (44 pounds) of brass ones, it will take your breath away. After viewing the exhibits, visit the Fornsalen Café, the museum's lunch-only restaurant serving salads, coffee and cake.
