... 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.

"tour" the Viking Ship
Located at Good Templar Park

Geneva, Illinois

Visit the Viking ship. 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 Saturday. Docent led tours begin every 30 minutes. Or just take a "self-guided" tour around the ship.
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.

Good Templar Park is a private park.
We request a lead-time of at least two weeks in order to check for the availability of the park and to schedule volunteer docents.
