Vikings Day

July 13 @ 10:00 am - 6:00 pm

The Vikings are here… for real! Sail into Viking Day at RAM for crafts, games, music, and of course, epic battles.

Meet the Vikings as you wander through their village. Visit the blacksmith’s forge; learn about ancient medicines and healing herbs; challenge a Viking to a game of “fools dice;” weave wire for jewellery, spin wool for clothing and try your hand at tablet weaving; Or, just enjoy the sounds of Viking age music, performed on historical instruments such as the lyre, horn flutes and panpipes.

Be sure to head upstairs to the theatre for a weapon and battle demonstration from the Viking warriors, before grabbing a weapon of your own to battle the Vikings! Demonstrations + Kiddy Vike are at 11:30 am and 2:30 pm.

Vikings Day activities run all day, and are included with your general admission. Skip the lineup and buy your tickets in advance online!

Special thanks to Odin’s Ravens Viking Age Re-enactors for helping ups bring Vikings: Beyond the Legend to life. Skål!
