From dream to reality 2007 - 2011

In 2007 the Viking Ship Museum opened a special exhibition about the Sea Stallion from Glendalough's voyage from reconstruction model to sailing with the worlds largest reconstructed Viking ship.
'From dream to reality' ended the great experiemtal archaeology project 'Thoroughbred of the Sea' and put a new perspective on Viking Age longships.

The exhibition spread across the entire museum area and communicated the reconstruction of the original ship, Skuldelev 2, building the Sea Stallion, sailing experiences, research results. life on board and the stories from the adventurous voyage.

Museum guests could see footage from the voyage on big screen, read the log book and write their own log position, find out what the 60 crew members ate, see the toilet and get close to the enourmous vessel.
