VIKINGS: JOURNEY TO NEW WORLDS in IMAX
Shot on location in Iceland, Greenland, and Newfoundland, this breathtaking IMAX film joins the Viking warriors and explorers as they set out in search of new lands. The North Atlantic Sagas come to life as we follow Eric the Red and his son Leif Ericsson, first to Greenland and then on to North America. State-of-the-art digital graphics dramatically illustrate the unique shipbuilding techniques that were the key to propelling the Vikings across the Atlantic and into history.
VIKINGS: LIVES BEYOND THE LEGENDS the Exhibition
The first North American stop for this exhibition, Vikings challenges our commonly held beliefs as they emerge in a fascinating new light. Insights into Viking domestic life, death rituals, the significance of their craft, the power of mythology and the symbolism of their ships are explored in this interactive exhibition. See hundreds of rare artifacts – jewellery, swords, axes, and clothing – many of which have never been shown outside Scandinavia.
