The Vikings Exhibition
Explore the rich, often-misunderstood Viking culture like never before with the largest collection of Viking artifacts ever displayed in North America. Featuring more than 500 treasures, some never before seen outside of Scandinavia, THE VIKINGS EXHIBITION shows us why—even 1,000 years later—Viking culture still captivates our imagination.
- Marvel at full-scale model Viking ships, including the Gokstad II and Ghost Ship.
- Virtually excavate a Viking ship layer by layer, uncovering rich discoveries like weapons, tools and animals as archeologists did.
- Experience daily life of the Viking people with hands-on interactive activities that explore the symbolism of traditional clothing, compete with other visitors in authentic Viking games and test your strength with an accurate model of a Viking sword.
- Learn about Norse mythology dating as far back as 750-1100 AD with displays of exquisite jewelry, metalwork craftsmanship like swords and armor, and religious iconography including the earliest known Scandinavian crucifix and striking silver pendants representing the pagan gods.
