Join us for a fun, Viking-themed weekend of activities for all the family in support of our 2017 special exhibition, The Vikings and Our Maritime Heritage.

Visit the Viking tents and meet costumed Vikings to discover how they lived. There will be a Viking dressing up box so children can replicate the look. Watch traditional craft demonstrations and have a go yourselves! Take part in old Viking games, listen to their stories, dig for hidden treasure in the child-friendly archaeological dig. Having enjoyed all the activities in and around the Museum of the Isles, you might like to find our adventure playground and explore the acres of lovely gardens and woodland walks.
