Though the ship's mast, rudder and several oars remain, and her dragon, head and tail are stored at the Museum of Science and Industry, many parts of the Viking have disappeared.
We appeal to those who might know of their whereabouts and request their return.
Can you help us?
We are accepting donations of items and memorabilia relating to the Viking. Items will be carefully cataloged and may be used as a part of the Viking ship exhibit.
