The Viking Ship
The Viking ship exhibit is closed for the winter.

Can you help?
Many parts of the Viking and pieces that traveled with her 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.
