Vikings: Journey to New Worlds at Carey IMAX Dome Theatre

Never before seen at the Cosmosphere, "Vikings: Journey to New Worlds" is now playing at the Carey IMAX® Dome Theater. It shows Monday through Thursday at 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3 p.m.; Friday and Saturday at 11 a.m., 1 p.m., 3 p.m. and 5 p.m.; and Sunday at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. The Cosmosphere member showings are scheduled for January 22, 23 and 24.

While popular and intriguing characters in world history, Vikings are also greatly misunderstood. "Vikings: Journey to New Worlds" provides a comprehensive portrait of the Vikings, exploring their historical and cultural impact as well as their technological and scientific achievements, and in the process takes audiences on a cinematic adventure through the lands they settled and explored.

The dawn of the Viking Age was a raid on an English monastery in the year 793 A.D. that established their reputation as marauding heathens from the North. But it was shipbuilding skills that truly set the Vikings apart.

Propelled by their wondrous ships, the Vikings stormed across Europe and the North Atlantic. Following the North Atlantic Sagas, we sail with Erik the Red from Iceland to Greenland and then with his son, Leif Eriksson, to North America, where he landed 500 years before Columbus.
