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.

The $52,000 grant allowed us to clean and stabilize the ship.

Now we need to clean and stabilize all of Viking's iron rivets.

Please, help us. Rescue a Rivet Today!

Many improvements have been made to the exhibit. One is a viewing ramp that allows visitors to see inside the ship, another is a series of educational posters.

In October additional steel crossbeams were installed under the keel to better support the Viking ship.
