Vikings on tour

“We Call Them Vikings” was the name of two touring exhibitions about the world of the Vikings and our image of that world – an image that has changed thanks to the archaeological discoveries of recent years.

The exhibitions toured the world from spring 2012 until summer 2019.


The exhibition brings people from the Viking period to life with a wealth of unique objects, multimedia productions and interactive elements. Our traditional view of the Vikings as brutal, bloodthirsty barbarians is also called into question.

We have during the last years been touring two versions of the exhibition. Parts of the other one will be integrated with the museums new permanent exhibition about the Vikings which will open spring 2020.
