Visit the Ship

Have the Viking experience! See the wonderful stabilization work that has been done. Walk up the ramp to the viewing platform and see inside. You’ll have lots of fun.  Come on a scheduled Open Day.  Docent led tours begin every 15 minutes.

Our volunteer docents will tell you all about this “one of a kind” ship.  You’ll learn of Viking’s construction, journey, and significance. You may even meet a Viking!  The Viking ship exhibit is usually open between 10:00 AM and 4:30 PM on the third Saturday of the month and additional scheduled dates April through October.  Please be sure to check the Events Calendar for the most up-to-date schedule.

    …the presentation was outstanding!

    “They covered the entire story!

    I knew the class would enjoy this visit, but it was even better than any had anticipated… all truly enjoyed the visit and seeing this amazing piece of history.

    Our questions were answered with patience and an incredible depth of knowledge.” said Rosalie Dixler, Coordinator of the “Around The Neighborhood” class from the Lifelong Learning Institute at National-Louis University after taking her class on a group tour of the 1893 Viking ship.
