Vikings World Wide: Guided tour in English

24 June, 2019 @ 10:00 - 18 August, 2019 @ 18:00

Vikings World Wide

From Arabic silvercoins in Stockholm to Viking graffiti in Istanbul

 Join the Vikings world wide this summer. Where did they travel and why? What traces of the Vikings’ rampaging can still be seen around the world today? And what did they bring back home to the north?

Guided tour in English every day during summer at 11:30, 12:30, 14:30, 16:30 and 17:15. 

Around thousand years ago some northerners went on Viking. Which means that they travelled by sea to plunder and ravage. But, many northerners were also engaged in peaceful trade and settlements of new areas. Their travels took them all the way to Istanbul in east and North America in west. Many of these places still have remains from the progressions of the Vikings.

This summer, The Viking Museum focuses on the travels and cultural exchanges of the Vikings. Join guided tours, meet Vikings and try their craft and food, listen to their stories and challenge them in board games every day during summer. Children can hunt runes and the youngest can explore the museum together with the tiny squirrel, suitably named Tiny.

The guided tour is ca 15 minutes long and is included in the admission. No booking needed.

Changes may occur.
