Experience a myth-busting exhibition that has captivated a million people around the world. Vikings lays waste to the one-dimensional stereotype of bearded barbarians with horns on their helmets.
Marvel instead at a fabled Scandinavian culture of surprising refinement, complexity and achievement, and a supernatural world inhabited by Thor, Odin and other gods and giants. The truth is wonderfully revealed in this acclaimed international exhibition.
Vikings features a rich array of engaging interactive displays and 500 outstanding artifacts from The Swedish History Museum, some rarely displayed outside their homeland. See why Viking reality trumps Viking myth, horned helmets and all!
The exhibition was developed by The Swedish History Museum in Sweden, in partnership with MuseumsPartner in Austria, and is presented at the Canadian Museum of History.
