The Viking world has gone. Yet the Vikings still pique our curiosity and imagination. What do they want from us?
The Vikings put Denmark and the other Scandinavian countries on the world map. Throughout history, we have spun myths about them being a particularly hardy and warlike people. But in reality, most people in the Viking Age were just ordinary peasants.
Join a guided tour of the National Museum’s new Viking exhibition, where we will be meeting the Vikings at home and on their raids. We will be taking a close look at the world’s largest Viking ship, spectacular gold treasures, everyday Viking objects – and the Vikings themselves. Amazing finds and fascinating stories help us to unpick the world of the Vikings. And we all marvel at the fact that they are still haunting us after 1000 years.
