For the second year in a row, the Museum will be transformed in celebration of Viking culture, complete with a Viking market, trade demonstrations, musical and theatrical performances, lectures, and on-the-water activities. Visit a Viking village encampment by living historians Draugar Vinlands, and the clinker-built Viking longship, Draken Harald Hårfagre, a reconstruction of what the Norse Sagas refer to as a “Great Ship.” And you won’t want to miss seeing the new documentary about the ship’s North Atlantic crossing!
Sample Scandinavian fare, watch traditional faering sailing, and a Nordic boat-building demonstration. There will be hands-on activities and games for children and adults throughout the day, and a special Planetarium show on Viking navigation. You’re guaranteed to have an amazing time during Mystic Seaport Museum’s Viking Days!
