Blast Off Into History

Dublina

See what life was almost exactly like onboard a Viking warship, learn and get to hold (with supervision of course) weaponry and better yet try on Viking clothing. Learn the myths and stories in a smoky Viking home from the incredible Vikings/ tour guides.

Your little one will be busy and filled with knowledge and fun.
