New Web for Vikingworld Revealed

Overlooking Vikingworld

A new and improved web for Vikingworld, vikingaheimar.is, was revealed today.

The web reports upon the exhibitions and facilities in the Vikingworld exhibition hall as well as the outside area around it where a settlement zoo is operated during the summertime as well as an outdoor playground which is being developed along with an outdoor classroom.

All material on the web is accessible both in Icelandic and English.

Vikingworld's main attraction is the viking ship the Icelander (Íslendingur), an exact replica of a ninth century viking ship, built by the Icelandic ship builder Gunnar Marel Eggertsson who then sailed it to New York in the year 2000 as a part of the millenial celebration of Leifur Eiríksson's journey to the New World.
