VIKINGS: BEYOND THE LEGEND
Through Monday, Jan. 1, 2018
What if the blood-thirsty plunderers you once thought you knew, were really just misunderstood explorers, farmers and traders?
Come explore Vikings to discover the truth about the Vikings age and dispel long-held stereotypes about its people, traditions and influence. Find yourself captivated by more than 400 authentic artifacts- some never before seen outside Scandinavia — including jewelry, funeral urns, weapons, game pieces, clothing and even a piece of 1,000-year-old Viking bread.
When you visit Vikings at Natural History Museum of Utah you will:
- Imagine a Viking voyage as you marvel a full-scale replica of a Viking ship
- Play a digital version of a popular Viking strategy game that pre-dates chess
- Test the balance between the blade and handle of a replica Viking sword
- Excavate a spectacular Viking burial boat, layer by layer, on an interactive touch table
