They sailed the seas, carried out devastating raids, and set out to conquer great cities… Today, the mere mention of their name fires the imagination. But what do we really know about the Vikings?
For the first time in Québec, and exclusively at Pointe-à-Callière, see 650 authentic objects selected from the exceptional Viking collection of the National Museum of Denmark, one of the world’s finest! The exhibition offers an in-depth immersion into the real and imaginary world of this legendary people, all set against a breathtaking exhibition design punctuated with images from the Ubisoft Montréal game Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.
Following the scald Thorvald (a Scandinavian poet) on an enthralling path through the exhibition, you will learn about the myths that populated the Vikings’ imagination and punctuated their lives, while the objects on display speak of the people who once used them. The four tales (origins, life, travel, and the end of days) are an invitation to travel, transporting you from one world to another, against a visual and aural backdrop that is both immersive and poetic.
Come live an immersive experience in the world of the Vikings while exploring an exceptional collection! And, as of April 21, pick up a copy of our VIKINGS – Dragons of the Northern Seas activity booklet at the ticket counter when you visit the Museum! The booklet helps younger visitors explore the exhibition, with challenges and questions to test their observational skills. An entertaining and educational supplement for younger kids… and the whole family!
