Enjoy a self-guided tour with a timed ticket for Viking- Beyond the Legend. The exhibit features interactive displays, hands-on challenges and over 500 artifacts on loan from the Swedish History Museum. Original artifacts show the highly skilled craftsmanship of people who used textiles, wood, bronze, iron, silver, bone, leather and ceramics to create incredible everyday items and ceremonial pieces.

Some of the most incredible artifacts are the four Viking ships, including the Krampmacken, a reconstruction of a 26-foot Viking merchant boat found on Gotland Island, Sweden in the 1920s, and the Karl, a reconstruction of a 21-foot sailing ship. The third ship is unique as it exists only in part, a "Ghost Ship" of original iron rivets suspended where they would have been before the oak hull deteriorated over 1,000 years. (The suggested time to view the display is 60-90 minutes).

Free time to enjoy the permanent collection.
