Vikings - Fact or Fiction

So, you think you know the Vikings? ‘Vikings: Fact or Fiction’ is a myth-busting exhibition from the team behind the world-famous JORVIK Viking Centre.

This exciting exhibition helps uncover some of the misconceptions we may have about the Vikings. Explore how they impacted the world, not just through raiding and conquering, but through craft making and trading. Learn about the clothes they wore and even what they did for fun in their spare time! Plus, children can get hands-on experience with the Viking Age through themed activities.
