For three hundred years Vikings, spread out from their Scandinavian homelands, sweeping the world from Baghdad to North America. Their name remains legend for terrifying raids on teh coasts of Britain, Ireland and Europe in the 8th to 11th Centuries.

Ferocious and fearless, they valued glory and valour above all things. They were skilled boatbuilders, expert navigators, and superb horsemen. Wherever they went they made a mark never to be forgotten.

Beyond their conquests, we now know they created trade routes, founded empires, produced items of exquisite design and made surprising contributions to our world.

The Australian National Maritime Museum at Darling Harbour presents treasures of the Viking World, artefacts and replicas sourced from the great Scandinavian and British collections, for an exhibition that digs beneath the legend and myth to reveal the story of these great navigators, explorers, warriors, traders and artists.
