Who were the Vikings? How did they live? How did their belief, skills, and culture influence our modern world?
Journey back to Scandinavia in the Viking Age! While Vikings engaged in invading and pillaging, their societies were complex and multifaceted. They were skilled craftspeople, successful merchants, and hard-working farmers whose influence was felt across western Europe and beyond.
Vikings: Beyond the Legend brings people from the Viking period to life with a wealth of unique objects, multimedia productions and interactive elements revealing the captivating story of the explorers who set sail from Scandinavia centuries ago.
You can expect 600 artifacts, a full-size 21-foot replica Viking ship, activities about everyday life, authentic Viking games, and norse mythology. You can even experience how heavy Viking swords really were! Don’t miss out on the chance to see this awesome exhibit at The Franklin Institute Science Museum.
