“the most beautiful ship ever built”

PRESERVATION WITH THE VIKING SPIRIT

Seeing the plight of this historic treasure, “friends” rallied around the Viking and decided this “first ever” replica Viking ship needed to be preserved.

HOW YOU CAN HELP

Many parts of the Viking and pieces that traveled with her, such as china and glassware, have disappeared. We appeal to those who might know of their whereabouts and request their return. We are accepting donations of items and memorabilia relating to the Viking. Items will be properly cataloged, and may be used as a part of the Viking ship exhibit. Please contact us if you have any items to donate.
