Maritime Museum Jersey Heritage
Tue 18 Feb 2020 10:00 - Sat 22 Feb 2020 16:00
Storm Dennis has scuppered the Vikings’ attempts to land in Jersey ready for the half term event opening on Monday.
The great news is that the daily invasion at the Maritime Museum will now run from Tuesday to Saturday, 18-22 February instead!
The Maritime Museum will still be open on Monday (17th) from 10am to 4pm as usual for some sea-themed fun.
Come and learn about the Vikings and what Viking life was like. There will be a host of crafts and activities, including:
- What’s your Viking name?
- A fun fact trail
- Make your own runes to spell your name
- Make Viking jewellery – cuffs and necklaces
- Try your hand at weaving and spinning
- Stories and games.
There will also be an opportunity to take part in the Battle of Stamford Bridge – a battle that most historians agree marked the end of the Viking era. Helping with the re-enactment will be five “Vikings” from Griffin Historical, a UK-based company which has previously brought to life Jersey Heritage’s pirate events.
Dress up optional…but loads more fun!
Normal entry fee applies, Jersey Heritage Members go FREE!
