GROUP TRAVEL LE ADER T H E V I K I NG S: B E Y O N D T H E L E G E N D Vikings have a reputation for being burly, bearded, horned warriors who sailed the world to burn and pillage. But visitors to "Vikings: Beyond the Legend" at the Cincinnati Museum Center may be surprised to find that many of the tales about the Viking culture are no more than myths. The exhibit runs through April in Cincinnati before opening at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. It showcases more than 500 Viking artifacts and objects, many never seen outside of Scandinavia, including 1,000-year-old textiles, ceramics, jewelry and weapons. Visitors can compete in traditional games, test their skills using a replica sword and learn about authentic Viking clothing. Exhibits explore Norse mythology and the world of Viking gods, like Thor and Odin. To-scale replicas of Viking ships include the 25-foot Krampmacken and the 21-foot Karl, and the genuine 122-foot Roskilde 6, the longest Viking ship ever discovered, is on display in North America for the first time.
