One of the many benefits of being a Geneva History Museum member! Join us for this sneak preview of the new Feature Gallery exhibition, Viking’s Voyage – A 19th century ship’s journey from Norway to Illinois.
Come explore the story of this replica ship that is the largest surviving display artifact of the 1893 Columbian Exposition and holds more than twenty-five years of Geneva history. This is the first time the newly restored nine-foot-tall dragon head and tail of the ship will be on display.
Special presentation on the history of the Viking Ship at 5:30 PM, The Vikings are Coming! by Dave Nordin, Vice-President of Friends of the Viking Ship.
Refreshments will be served.
