2021 Timewarp: The Vikings

Vikings 2021

On now until 31 December 2021

The Vikings Timewarp in the Discovery Room features a replica Viking Ship as the centrepiece plus replica Viking objects and costumes.  Visitors can play draughts using exact copies of the Viking gaming counter discovered in Guernsey.   

The Timewarp has been created by the team in-house and we pride ourselves in providing unique learning experiences for families.  

Read more about the Vikings Timewarp here in a review by Island Families.
