“Vikings Exhibition”

Travel back in time to the Viking Age from the 8th to 11th centuries in this historical exhibition. Featuring more than 500 artifacts—many never seen before outside Scandinavia—it immerses visitors in Viking culture and allows them to learn more about Viking family and community, religion and rituals, travel and trade, aristocracy and slavery and the roles of women. As visitors view artifacts like Viking helmets, wrought brooches, gold and silver pendants, the oldest known Scandinavian crucifix and swords, they’ll gain a broader understanding of Norse craftsmanship and Viking mythology. Highlights of the exhibition include the Gokstad II, a replica of a Scandinavian Viking Boat and interactive experiences like excavation of a virtual boat grave and a Scandinavian board game. All ages.
