The Viking with Crystal Hollis square

The Gokstad ship is a 9th-century Viking ship found in a burial mound at Gokstad in Norway in 1880.

In 1893 the first ever replica of the Gokstad sailed across the Atlantic from Norway to Chicago. The replica, known as The Viking, has resided in Chicago ever since. Come hear the story of this incredible artefact from its construction to present day, and learn about today’s conservation efforts.

Admission includes the opportunity to view the current YourDIG: Help for Heroes exhibition, which looks at one of the very latest attempts to reconstruct a Viking ship at the Phoenix House Recovery Centre, Catterick!
